Director: Lee Doo Young

Rating: M18 (Sexual scenes and nudity)
6 November, Wednesday - 8PM
Set in 15th century Korea, Kil-rye’s poor family weds her to an official’s deceased son. She endures her suffering stoically, submitting to the cruel logic governing her life as it moves to an inevitable conclusion. This highly-controversial film confronted Koreans with the incredible extent of women’s oppression during the Joseon era. So merciless was its demystification of this golden age that critics almost called it treason, inadvertently underlining the persistence of male domination in contemporary Korea.

About Faces of the Korean Woman
6 Oct - 17 Nov | Oldham Theatre
To commemorate 100 years of Korean cinema in 2019, the Asian Film Archive presents Faces of the Korean Woman, a film programme that explores the multi-faceted portrayal of women throughout Korean film history from the 1930s to the 2010s.
As the figure of the Korean woman moves through tumultuous periods of Korean history―from the Joseon Dynasty, to the Park Chung-hee era, up to the contemporary times of neoliberalism―we see various interpretations of girlhood and womanhood manifested on screen, albeit through a predominantly male-oriented lens. They oscillate between the virtuous and the vampish, the pitiful and the horrific, the subjugated and the fiercely independent.
Featuring historically important early classics, popular genre films and critically acclaimed works by iconic male and female Korean directors, the programme’s 24 female character-driven films hope to offer a retrospective view on female representation in Korean cinema, and open up new perspectives through the restoration of their faces within the cinematic imaginary.
