Koreans in Japanese films

There are many, though I haven't had luck finding any of these with English

Imamura Shohei's Nyanchan

Sai Yoichi's Tsuki wa docchi ni dete iru
If you are considering documentary, there are Nakata Toichi's Osaka Story
and Matsukawa Tetsuaki's Anyong Kimch'i.
Also, you might want to take a look at the One Korea website, which has more

Hope this helps.
