SEOUL, July 5 (Yonhap) -- A DVD set of classic Korean movies titled "Landscape of Postwar Period" received the "Best Rediscovery" award of the Il Cinema Ritorva, which recently ended in Bologna, Italy, the Korean Film Archive (KOFA) said Thursday.

Landscape of Postwar Period is a set of four Korean features by four major directors during a very troubled era following the 1950-1953 Korean War. The films are "Widow" (1955) by Park Nam-ok, the first female director of the country; "Flower in Hell" (1958) by Shin Sang-ok; "Money" (1958) by Kim So-dong; and "A Drifting Story" (1960) by Kwon Yung-soon.

KOFA released the DVD set in July last year.

The Il Cinema Ritrovato (Cinema Rediscovered) DVD Awards is held as part of Il Cinema Ritrovato, a festival dedicated to the rediscovery of rare and little-known films with a particular focus on cinema origins and the silent movie period. The DVD Awards selects top DVDs of films produced before 1982 in five categories: Best DVD, Best Rediscovery, Best Bonus, Best Series and Best Box-Set.

Il Cinema Ritrovato is organized every summer by the Cineteca di Bologna, Italy, and is one of the world's major festivals of film restoration. It was founded in 1986.
