 Program Note
 Director Torill KOVE’s grandmother often told her story about ironing shirts for the King of Norway. Director KOVE weaves a story like a fabric from this personal story and historical events back then. Her grandmother might have launched guerrilla warfare to resist the Nazis. The director combines her grandmother’s life and tales with her imagination and fantasy and historical facts, which renders the film into a mythical legend. It is a myth or sharp humor created at the intersection of official history and personal history. (CHO Hye-young)
