Director PARK Nam-ok of The Widow was the first female director in Korea who made a film in the midst of discrimination and prejudice in the male-centered film production filled with patriarchal injustices. She was so passionate enough to control the project while carrying her daughter on her back. She has become a great example to other filmmakers. However, she could not make her second film and passed away in 2017. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Korean films, the SIWFF presents a special talk with the director's daughter to talk about the late director's life and film.
