Movie ‘Kyrie’s Song’ officially invited to BIFF ‘Window on Asian Cinema’
Director Shunji Iwai's new film 'Kyrie's Song' was officially invited to the 'Window on Asian Cinema' section of the 28th Busan International Film Festival and confirmed for world premiere screening.

'Kyrie's Song' is about three people: 'Kirie' (Aina the End), a street musician who speaks only through singing, 'Ikko' (Suzu Hirose), a friend who erased herself, and 'Natsuhiko' (Hokuto Matsumura), a man looking for his missing lover. An emotional story that tells a secret story.

In particular, the 178-minute director's cut version of 'Kyrie's Song' will be screened at the Busan International Film Festival. A special version screened for film festival audiences provides a unique experience to the audience, while director Shunji Iwai's unique detailed direction and visual beauty touch the emotions of viewers, heralding the birth of this fall's best well-made film.

Aina the End, a member of the band 'Bish', which hit the music playlist of the Japanese MZ generation, and Hokuto Matsumura, an actor who voiced the role of 'Sota' in 'Suzume's Door Break' and a member of Johnny's boy group 'SixTONES', appeared in 'Kyrie's'. ‘Song’ heralds a unique transformation.

After winning the Best New Actor Award at the 39th Japan Academy Awards for director Hirokazu Koreeda's film 'Sea Village Diary', he is a popular actor who has proven his amazing acting spectrum through several works such as 'Fury', 'The Third Murder', and 'The Last Letter'. Suzu Hirose joined.

The movie 'Kyrie's Song' will be officially invited to the 28th Busan International Film Festival to be held from October 4th to 13th and meet audiences for the first time as a world premiere, and is scheduled to be released in Korea in October.
