7 feature films from the 69th Venice Film Festival
The cultural project aimed at promoting and diffusing Italian cinema around the world, which La Biennale di Venezia started first in Brazil and then in China and Russia, in 2012 also reaches a new destination, South Korea, right in the year in which the Golden Lion for Best Film of the 69th Venice International Film Festival was awarded to Pieta by the great Korean director Kim Ki-duk.
From 12 December 2012 to 6 January 2013 the Venice in Seoul festival will take place in Seoul, organized by La Biennale di Venezia in partnership with the local Italian Cultural Institute and with the Seoul Video Library.
In South Korea, Venice in Seoul will present an important selection of Italian films from the 69th Venice International Film Festival - 2012, as well a selection of films from the «80!» retrospective, established to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Venice Film Festival; these films were presented during past Venice Film Festivals and selected on the basis of rarity, using and restoring the copies from the Collections of the Historic Archives of the Contemporary Arts of the Biennale (ASAC).
The 69th Venice International Film Festival was held at the Lido di Venezia from 29th August to 8th September 2012, directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta.
