Hirokazu Kore-eda has been diligently crafting award-winning fare in Japan for nearly 30 years, culminating with his recent heart-wrenching Palme d’Or winner Shoplifters. Lately, he’s begun to test the waters with international productions, first making the French co-production The Truth, a drama starring Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, and Ethan Hawke, which marked his first project not in the Japanese language. And now he’s expanding to Korea, bringing Parasite star Song Kang-ho and his The Host co-star Bae Doona on board his first Korean-language film, Baby, Box, Broker.
