I love the Japanese director Shohei Imamura. His masterpiece in 1979 called, the English title was 'Vengeance is Mine.'
I'm sure mothers are important across every culture, but particularly in Korean society, the role of the mother is of great importance.
No matter where I am working, I cannot make a film without 100% creative control and final cut. If there is such a guarantee, I can work anywhere.
The mother's love for her child is very strong in Korean society - almost on the borderline of being an obsession.
