Abused South Korean actress slams Berlinale's 'hypocritical' stance on #MeToo

While the Berlin film festival is promoting its forum to tackle abuse in the industry, a South Korean actress has accused organizers of hypocrisy for inviting director Kim Ki-Duk, accused of sexual misconduct.

Renowned South Korean director Kim Ki-duk, famous for his disturbing and controversial art-house films, has been invited to premiere his latest film at the Berlin International Film Festival, leading an actress who had accused the filmmaker of violence and sexual abuse in December 2017 to speak out against the festival's organizers.
