The South Korean filmmaker, outstanding figure of Asian auteur cinema, returns to Gijón after visiting Berlin and Locarno film festivals.

The prolific film director Hong Sang-soo will present in Gijón his latest feature films, made in 2018. Sang-soo, who won Best Film Award in FICX 2015 for “Right Now, Wrong Then”, will have a significant presence in our festival due to the participation of his two new films in the Official Section which have been previously received with great enthusiasm in Berlin and Locarno.
- Grass (Official Section, out of competition) −presented by the Forum section of the Berlin International Film Festival− focuses on the characters in a central Seoul cafe. Sang-soo plays again with the typical elements of his works: the random combination of individuals and his ability to define the relationships between the characters in his shots.
- Hotel by the River (Official Section, in competition) was one of the most awaited films of the Official Section in Locarno Film Festival, where it picked up the Best Actor Award for lead Ki Joo-bong. On this occasion, the film tells the story of an ageing poet who suddenly feels at the end of his life.
Hong Sang-soo has received more than 40 awards throughout his career, which began in 1996, from different international festivals such as Cannes, Locarno, Mar de Plata, Rotterdam, San Sebastián or Gijón.
