The film is a sequel to The Wedding Story of a Woman with Disability (1999). While the former portrayed the life of disabled woman, Kim Jin-ok, getting married, Jin-ok Goes to School focuses on Jin-ok’s family life after giving birth to and raising her daughter Seo-kyoung. Making a documentary about the development of a single individual is a slow process, requiring the development of a close relationship between subject and filmmaker, but such long term attention allows the director to capture the character’s personal and private life in their intimate relationships. Jin-ok, a typical mother who wishes to bring up her daughter well, makes an effort to become an insurance broker and a counselor for sexual violence against a disabled women. The documentary helps non-disabled viewers shake off pity for or prejudice against the disabled and the disabled can find encouragement in identification with Jin-ok’s active life. (KIM Sunah)
