News: A GIRL AT MY DOOR acquired by UK's Peccadillo Pictures

By Hieu Chau

After an impressive showing at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, July Jung’s film, A Girl At My Door (Doheeya), has been picked up by independent UK distributor Peccadillo Pictures, according to Screen Daily.

Competing in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes, the film stars MKC favourite Bae Doo-na and Kim Sae-ron, with acclaimed auteur Lee Chang-dong serving as producer.

A Girl At My Door has seen much critical adulation, including praise from our own Pierce Conran who stated that the film was so “well-wrought that one can’t help but be swept up in its artistry” and an example of “Korean cinema at its finest”. Pierce's full review of the film can be found right here

The film will likely be screening in the UK by 2015, according to Peccadilli Pictures’ chairman Tom Abell.
