Quentin Tarantino to Visit Busan Festival

U.S. director to hold public talk with Korea's Bong Joon-ho

BUSANQuentin Tarantino is a late addition to the Busan
festival line-up. The U.S. director, whose “Kill Bill” films drew
on Asian themes, will visit the South Korean festival for the first
time on Friday, event organizers said today. Tarantino is expected
to host a public talk session in which he squares off with Korean
helmer Bong Joon-ho, director of “The Host” and the recent
“Snowpiercer.” Tarantino was this week in Macau to receive a
Huading award and will next week receive a Lumiere Award in Lyon,
France, in recognition of “his radiant passion for cinema, for the
tributes paid even within his films to the whole mythology of
cinema..” Variety’s senior film critic Peter Debruge this week
described Tarantino as “the great recycler,” for his efforts to
keep alive the traditions of exploitation, grindhouse and B-movie
fare.
