Korean Women Filmmakers: A Screening and Discussion

Korean Women Filmmakers: A Screening and Discussion with Yim Soon–rye

With Yim Soon–rye, Film Director

Moderated by Yunah Hong, Documentary Filmmaker
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
6:00–6:30 PM * Registration and Reception
6:30–8:30 PM * Discussion

The Korea Society
950 Third Avenue @ 57th Street, 8th Floor
(Building entrance on SW corner of Third Avenue and 57th Street)

Women represent only a small minority of the Korean film industry's behind–the–camera talent, yet they make up an impressive number of the industry's top filmmakers. Acclaimed director Yim Soon–rye explores the roles that she and her fellow women directors play in the industry in her documentary Keeping the Vision Alive: Women in Korean Filmmaking. Join us as we screen Keeping the Vision Alive, as well as Yim's short film The "Weight" of Her—a satire of the expectations Korean society places on women—followed by a discussion with award–winning documentary filmmaker Yunah Hong on the role of female filmmakers in Korea today.

Keeping the Vision Alive: Women in Korean Filmmaking
2001, 52 minutes

Keeping the Vision Alive retells the history of the Korean film industry to include the contributions of its female writers, editors, cinematographers, producers and directors. Using archival footage and interviews, including with Park Nam–ok, Korea's first female director, the film relates the sexism and other challenges its subjects struggle to overcome.

The "Weight" of Her
2002, 23 minutes

This short satire surveys the hidden life of a girls' high school and the tremendous social pressure to look good.

Hi the festival has a rule and a policy.

I suppose the entry fee is meant to sort crap from quality.
