World Premiere

SYNOPSIS
At the Square, everyone fought against the corruption of President PARK Geun-hye. Feminists had the additional burden to fight against misogyny in the Square.

PROGRAM NOTE
It is one of the short films made as a part of an omnibus activist project called ///Square// that calls for the resignation of President PARK Geun-hye. A number of feminist organizations have actively participated in the candlelight protests in Gwanghwamun Square. This film focuses on featuring interviews to articulate how feminists have experienced and understood a series of incidents including the Sewol Ferry Disaster and the Gangnam Murder Case under the PARK’s administration. It reflects women’s history written from a feminist perspective that does not forget to include the feminists during the rallies as “citizens” who dared to subvert society and history. (Sunah KIM)
