Event description

Description

This night of six short films illustrates how the experiences of women in Korea have changed since the 1930s. Responding to the stereotype that Kim Hong-joon defines in Smoking Women, these films question the legacy of the ‘femme fatale’ identity in contemporary filmmaking. Made by a mix of men, women, expats and emigres, these short films chronologically cover the female experience from childhood through to old age. In doing so, these short films collectively offer a new image and definition of the ‘millennial woman’: one who is finally in charge of her own destiny.
