Ryu Seong-hie won the Vulcain Prize For An Artist Technician, for the magnificent work he did as a set decorator on Park Chan-wook’s latest film, “The Handmaiden”.
The award rewards the work of a technician for his collaboration in the creation of a film from the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival. It is awarded by a special jury, appointed by the Superior Technical Commission of Image and Sound (French: Commission Supérieure Technique de l’Image et du Son or CST). The actual trophy is awarded to the winner in Paris, during a special evening following the festival.
Ryu Seong-hie is one of the leading Korean in the field, having collaborated with Park on “Oldboy” and “Thirst.” She has also won two Blue Dragon Awards for art direction, for her work in “The Front Line” and “Ode to my Father.”
