The 20th SIWFF presents a special trailer to celebrate its 20-year history by compiling previous trailers. By editing together and screening the past 19 trailers in chronological order, Director SUN Jee Yeon skillfully demonstrates the power of women's films, showing how they began as a small nascent movement and grew into a large wave throughout the world. The 20-year trailer collection is a tribute to the women's films which have grown with SIWFF.
SUN Jee Yeon was born in Seoul. After receiving her BA in German Literature from Yonsei University, she completed her film studies at the Korean Academy of Film Arts. She won First Prize with her short Atomic Punch, My Darling in the Asian Short Film & Video Competition section at the 8th SIWFF. The film was invited to many other film festivals including the Berlin Short Film Festival and Pragueshorts. Her feature film My Sister was screened in the Female Bodies section at the 10th SIWFF. She also participated in producing the short Girls at War, the web drama A day for Romance, the animations Magic Han War and The Slow. She joined the SBS TV series Judge vs. Judge as a writer and actively writes for TV drama series.
A 20th anniversary marks a celebration of the coming of age. For two decades, filmmaking media and screening methods have dramatically changed from analog to digital. Women are united to proclaim "Me too! With you!" in solidarity. As single units gather to form a group and to become stronger, a series of pixel completes a video screen. Likewise, the pixels of the past are converted into the electronic digital images of the future. To express the concept of the 'Superpixel,' the director works to show the process of how the microscopic birth of a seed develops into a larger picture, revealing the macroscopic reality. While the trailer shows the past 19 trailers in chronological order, it also reveals the dynamic future of SIWFF in powerful colors and superpixel motion.
