      "Dust Kid," an animation directed by Jung Yu-mi, has been invited to the prestigious Director's Fortnight Program at the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival to be held in France from May 13 to 24.

      The 10-minute independent short animation features a theme that although, like dust settling directly after cleaning, people are never free from worries, they are still able to garner their strength.

      Winning the application for the Seoul Metropolitan Government's support for short animation production in 2007, given to nurture the local animation industry, the film received W20 million (US$1=W1,356) to complete.
