I’ll Be Seeing Her: Images of Women in Korean Cinema is the latest work of Kim Soyoung, a film scholar and filmmaker, commissioned by the Ministry of Gender Equality to be permanently exhibited in the Women’s History Exhibition Hall collecting vast material of Korean film history from the very early years through the 1950s to the present, the film rearranges images and excerpts of Korean films using key words to reappropriate ‘the women on the silver screen’ in a female perspective. A study on women’s images in Korean films and women’s perspective of Korean film history, the film is rich with interviews of ‘the women off the silver screen,’ that is, women spectators and women film professionals, who gathered in Pusan, Jinju, and Seoul. They have visions of cinema being a ‘women’s field’ in the digital age. WFFIS intends to extend, share, and reflect on the ecstatic moments when women on and off the silver screen encounter one another in a space beyond time at this special screening. (Kwon Eun-sun)
