Sundance Film Festival, the largest independent film festival in the United States, has awarded its Grand Jury Award in the US Drama section to Korean American writer-director Lee Isaac Chung’s ‘Minari’, which also took home the Audience Award.

‘Minari’ is a semi-autobiographical film about the director’s own experience of growing up in rural Arkansas when his father decided to relocate the family there to start a farm.

The cast includes Steven Yeun (‘Burning’), Han Ye-Ri (‘Sea Fog’) and Youn Yuh-Jung (‘The Housemaid’), who were all in attendance at the award ceremony.
