Keeping the Vision Alive - Women in Korean Filmmaking

Film info

2001. Directed by Yim Soon-rye , 51 mins.

This film by acclaimed New Wave director Yim Soon-rye is the perfect complement to this year’s LKFF focus on women independent filmmakers. The film encourages the possibility for an alternative history of Korean cinema as told by the women working in film. The vision being kept alive is that of filmmakers like Park Nam-ok, who with her film The Widow from 1955, paved the way for other independent women filmmakers. The film combines excerpts of films with interviews with contemporary feature and documentary directors such as Byun Young-joo and Jang Hee-sun who speak openly about their own experiences and their endurance in a male dominated and conservative industry.
