The film director Pavel Chukhray is going to shoot his new feature film – Revenge - in Sakhalin.
The film tells about the destiny of a Korean young man, who was brought by Japanese to Sakhalin with his compatriots in the early 1940s.
The shootings are planned to be started next year and will be based on the same-name short story by the Soviet and Russian prose writer, playwright, and translator Anatoly Kim, who lived for a few years in Sakhalin.
The short story tells about the life of a Korean young man, who as a boy was bearing the idea of revenge for the death of his sister. The revenge idea was handed down to him by his father. After the young man found himself in Sakhalin lots of things in his life cardinally changed.
Two thirds of the film plot will be shot in Sakhalin, and the remaining part will be made in South Korea on Korean money and with active assistance of the Korean government and South Korean businessmen, the film director Pavel Chukhray specified.
