In the running for the San Francisco International Film Festival's New Directors Prize is "A Brand New Life," Korean-French filmmaker Ounie Lecomte's semiautobiographical tale of an orphaned girl in 1970s South Korea.

Synopsis: After her father abandons her, 9-year-old Jinhee builds a life for herself behind orphanage walls and dares to dream of the world beyond.

Note: Although the trailer is in Korean, the film will be subtitled in English.
