This is one of the short films made as a part of an omnibus activist project called ‘Square’ that calls for the resignation of President Park Geun-hye. A number of feminist organizations have actively participated in the candlelight protests in Gwanghwamun Square. This film focuses on interviews to articulate how feminists have experienced and understood a series of incidents including the Sewol Ferry Disaster and the Gangnam Murder Case under Park’s administration. It reflects women’s history written from a feminist perspective that does not forget to include the feminists during the rallies as “citizens” who dared to subvert society and history.
