BBC news video on recent London Korean Film Festival

A quick interview with Kwak Kyung-taek and Roger Clark, and a quick preview of King and the Clown, to be featured at the BFI London Film Festival. The presenter mentions that there are two other Korean films at the BFI festival. I can only find the one short film. If anyone can spot the other one (if it exists), please shout.

The BBC news video is here. The introductory text reads

Movie fans in London have been given the chance to see a diverse range of productions at the Korean Film Festival 2006.

Korean movies have long been popular in Asia, but filmmakers are now trying to appeal to a wider audience. Carmen Roberts reports.

Thanks to Jase for telling me, and congratulations to the Korean Cultural Centre publicity machine for getting the BBC there.
