NEW YORK -- "Minari," a semi-autobiographical film directed by Lee Isaac Chung that has won the Golden Globe Award in the foreign-language category, is casting fresh light on the Asian American immigrant experience by honing in on interactions between multiple generations of a single family.
The movie, which grabbed the award at the annual ceremony on Sunday, is the latest Korean-themed work to receive industry acclaim after "Parasite," which took same award at the 2020 Golden Globes followed by the Academy Award for Best Picture at last year's Oscars.
