Yesterday, a brawl broke out at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) when some audience members tried to sit on seats reserved for VIPs. The incident occurred at a screening of Kim Kim Duk’s Net at the already overcrowded Tagore theatre. As sections of the audience protested, the organisers tried to stop them from occupying those seats. Following this, a brawl broke out.
Meanwhile, the rest of the crowd at the theatre began to sing the national anthem. The response from those involved in the scuffle was immediate, as they stopped fighting and began singing the anthem as well.
Kim Ki-Duk has a big fan following in Kerala, possibly surpassing that of his own country.
