A film partially produced by two Koreans won the cinematography award at Sundance Film Festival on Saturday.
Titled “Mother of George,” the film features an immigrant couple from Nigeria living in Brooklyn who have difficulty conceiving a baby.
Two Koreans, Saerom and Saemi Kim, participated in the production process of the film, along with eight other producers. The sisters have been working at Maybach Film Productions, an independent film production company and investment group based in Beverly Hills, California, for the last three years.
The Kims’ previous works include last year’s independent film “Starlet,” which starred Ernest Hemingway’s great-granddaughter Dree Hemingway in the leading role. Dree Hemingway currently works as an actress and a model.
The Kim sisters’ first film, “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” released in 2011, won the U.S. Directing Award for Best Drama at Sundance Film Festival in the same year. The film, starring Elizabeth Olsen, is about a young woman who returns to her family from an abusive cult group in the Catskill Mountains in the state of New York.
The Kims recently opened their branch office in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul.
