The second part of a video interview series from Cannes by myself and Ryland Walker Knight.

The second part of a video interview series from Cannes by myself and Ryland Walker Knight.  We sat down with Bong Joon-ho, who is serving as president of the Camera d'Or jury, on Tuesday, May 16, 2011.

Ryland is covering Cannes in English for the blog of German film magazine Cargo, as well as his own blog.  Thanks to Kim Yejin for translating.

Wonderful! Glad I was able to shake his hand @ VIFF, but it seems like he’d be fun guy to grab a drink with!
hahaha, she’s such a bad interpreter. she totally mangles his answer to the first question. good thing he just takes over.
Love it. He’s a filmmaker who considers genre as a challenge to defy its’ conventions.
Very nice! I love that he chose the final shot of MOTHER as a scene he’s especially proud of and enjoyed hearing him elaborate on it.
