“A star among stars” in the Korean film world, CHOI Eun-hee recently passed away at age 92. Having experienced the life of a top Korean actress in the 1960s, been kidnapped to North Korea in the 1970s, and dramatically escaped North Korea with director Simon SHEEN in the 1980s, CHOI’s life was more like a movie than a movie itself. She was a memorable woman with a face capable of portraying thousands of emotions in films, playing every diverse role from an elite female activist, country girl, war widow, bar girl, to a prostitute. There are many ways we can remember CHOI Eun-hee. In loving memory of her passing, SIWFF presents a ‘CHOI behind the Camera’ exhibition to showcase her life as a filmmaker—the third woman to take on this career in Korea—through the screening of The Girl Raised as a Future Daughter-In-Law and One-sided Love of Princess. Directed by CHOI with Shin Film, a major production company at the time, these two films cleverly unfold the pressures and hardships the feudal ethics and values of marriage have on women’s lives. ‘In Memory of Versatile CHOI Eun-hee: CHOI behind the Camera’ will underscore how CHOI is different from the female filmmakers that have come before her such as PARK Nam-ok and HONG Eun-won—those who had to pioneer their own path in filmmaking—in that she wasn’t a trailblazer, but she nonetheless shared the awareness and critical mind with her fellow female filmmakers.
