Can people say the word ‘menstruation’ as easily as we say “ice cream” or “snacks”? This documentary casually but earnestly asks people their thoughts on this word, whoever the camera encounters on the streets, in homes, at school and in club rooms. To the women, this word reminds them of pain, crankiness and something they cannot avoid, while to the men, it is uncomfortable, embarrassing and unknown. A lively project to contemplate, discuss and eventually experience menstruation as fun, healthy and beautiful. So everyone, let’s all go and menstruate. (Shim Hye-kyung)
