The Excellence Award of the 72nd Locarno Film Festival goes to Song Kang-ho, a many-sided figure in South-Korean and international cinema. An exceptional, remarkably versatile artist, Song has tested himself constantly across a career stretching over more than two decades, tackling an endless variety of genres and roles and subtly altering the register of his approach to find ever greater dramatic depth. In this interview Song talks about his experience in Locarno, his approach to acting and his future projects.

The Excellence Award pays tribute to film personalities whose efforts and talents have enriched cinema. Winners of the Excellence Award at previous Festivals include Ethan Hawke, Mathieu Kassovitz, Edward Norton, John Malkovich, Juliette Binoche, and Isabelle Huppert.
