Pen-ek Ratanaruang's jungle ghost story Nymph (Nang Mai) is among a slate of 26 titles announced for the Toronto International Film Festival.
Nymph, about a haunting supernatural love affair involving a forest spirit and a young couple who've drifted apart, will make its North American premiere in the Toronto fest's 34th edition, which runs from September 10 to 19. It's part of the Visions program for "brazen newcomers and veteran filmmakers who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary cinema".
Other Asian titles include Air Doll by Hirokazu Kore-eda, Face by Tsai Ming-liang, Independencia by Raya Martin and Karaoke by Chris Chong -- all which played alongside Nymph in programs at the Cannes Film Festival.
Nymph opens in Thailand on July 1.
