Gloria doesn’t want to be like her mother: Get married, forget her dream, and live boringly ever after. She wants to reach her dream: make a movie. Her mother, having one more year to live, tries to make her daughter live like her: Get married, live for others, and live happily ever after. So the battle begins.


 


Gloria, a female director with impressive achievements from both critics and audiences, struggles to get investment for her second film while frequently fighting with her mom, who urges her to get married. In the film, Gloria works as a part-time teacher, fools around at her friend’s DVD store, and revises her scenario according to an investor’s demand, easily gaining the sympathy of women living in large cities of Asia who are well-educated, have high specifications, pursue voluntary ever-singleness, and are cultural nomads(or dream of becoming like them). Sammaria SIMANJUNTAK, a director as well as scriptwriter, integrates global pop culture’s comedy and dramatic grammar into the story and twists it a bit. ‘Ucok’, from the film’s original title After Ucok , means Batak men, one of the ethnic groups of Indonesia. Although it would be difficult to deliver the entire story in Korean, one of the conflicts that Gloria is going through is based on Indonesia’s complicated ethnic makeup and the conflicts between the various ethnic groups. Just like the story in the film, After Ucok was completed by means of grand-scale social fundraising through audience members. [HWANG Miyojo]
