Polemics: Technofeminism - Women, Science & SF

This year, the ‘Polemics’ section titled ‘Technofeminism - Women, Science & SF’ features groundbreaking and futuristic films closely looking at science, technology, and sci-fi genre from a feminist point of view. Science and technology may seem objective and neutral; however, gender inequality is pervasive in these fields as well. That is why it is important to bring feminist visions and values into these fields especially when science and technology revolutionize our lives not to mention our body and job. In regard to this, ‘Polemics: Technofeminism - Women, Science & SF’ offers a wide variety of outstanding films: Conceiving Ada, a cyberspace sci-fi and fantasy film about the VR encounter with Ada LOVELACE known as the world’s first computer programmer; Marie Curie - The Courage of Knowledge, a biographical film that sheds light on the accomplishments of a woman scientist and describes the unfair gender discrimination against her; Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival, an intimate and poetic documentary about Donna HARAWAY, a great philosopher of science and the author of A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century(1985); No Gravity and The Afronauts that tell the stories of women astronauts; The Handmaid’s Tale, a sci-fi film imagining a dystopian future where women are treated as nothing more than fertility machines; and CodeGirl and GTFO: Get the F&#% Out about women working in the cutting-edge tech industries such as IT and video game. In particular, the world premiere screening of the VR film Bloodless will allow you to explore three-dimensional space from a subjective point of view of a sex worker near the US military base while the ‘Bloodless + VR Forum’ will be a meaningful opportunity to find out interesting stories behind the production of Bloodless. To discuss the relevant issues these films address in depth, a forum will take place, inviting Korean women sci-fi writers and professionals as panels.
