Actress Moon So-ri made her red carpet appearance at the 73rd annual Venice Film Festival as a judge on Wednesday. “I look forward to seeing what all that the films I will be judging have to offer, and learning from them,” said Moon in a statement released by her management agency C-Jes Entertainment on Thursday.
Globally acclaimed for her leading roles in Im Sang-soo’s “A Good Lawyer’s Wife” (2003) and Lee Chang-dong’s “Oasis” (2002), the 42-year-old actress will be judging in the Orizzonti section, which awards films that embody “the latest aesthetic and expressive trends in international cinema,” according to the festival’s official website.
The category features global productions, including Tim Sutton’s “Dark Night,” Giovanni Fumu’s “Good News,” Fien Troch’s “Home,” and others.
Following the footsteps of directors Park Chan-wook of “The Handmaiden” (2016) and Gina Kim of “Never Forever” (2007), Moon is the third Korean and first Korean actress to be among the jurors at the annual event.
The oldest film festival in the world, the Venice Film Festival will be taking place in Venice, Italy until Sept. 10.
