 Program Note
 It is a hot steamy summer with forty-five days of drought by the abnormal climate. Marie and Letty, Pilipino immigrant workers who work in a textile mill, face suffocating lives. Marie, who is dating a manager, Hyun-woo, feels unusual about her body. Letty finds out that Choi, who organizes a fraternity, fled with her money. In the past a few years, there has been growing interest on female immigrate workers and consequently there has have been films about immigrant workers as well but most of them were about victims of violence. But in those cases, the toughness against violence and desire often gets ignored. Marie & Letty distinguishes itself from other films by describing two independent female immigrant workers who do not shy away from their rights and are willing to seek out their desires actively with a strong sense of bond in their friendship. (CHO Hye-young)
