With the exception of the broad north Italian Plain at the foot of the Alps, the peninsula is crosscut through much of its length by the Apennine mountain chain.
On the Road, Two Kim Tae-yong My Own Breathing This documentary by Byun Young-joo is the final chapter of a trilogy documenting the present and past lives of "comfort women" who were abducted and forced into sexual servitude by the Japanese army in World War II.
At the same time, the films have drawn praise for their aesthetic and emotional power.
Byun states that when she first contacted a group of comfort women and asked if she could film them, they refused emphatically.
It was only after living together with them for one year that the director gained their trust and permission to make a film. This first documentary portrays the women leading their weekly protests at the Japanese embassy and fighting to overcome the sense of shame that has been planted within them and reinforced by an uncaring public.
Habitual Sadness was initiated at the request of the women, who asked that Byun film the last days of a group member who had been diagnosed with cancer. In this film we see the women gaining self-confidence, eventually moving behind the camera themselves to utilize the medium of film as a means of both protest and healing.
In My Own Breathing, we are introduced to a new character who was taken forcibly into service at 14 years old. In the picture above, she is interviewed by another former comfort woman, who was shown in earlier films and who underwent many of the same experiences. The director understands that as heart-rending as the accounts of forced prostitution may be, we can only come to understand these women by focusing on their present.
Some of the most shattering moments in the film come about unexpectedly; small details that reveal the humor and personality of these women who survive years after the wreckage of their youth. Directed by Byun Young-joo. Produced by Shin Hye-eun.
Cinematography by Byun Young-joo, Han Jong-gu. Editing by Park Gok-ji. Screened at the Pusan International Film Festival. Released in Korea on March 18, Being Normal Walking hand in hand with the rise of Korean Cinema has been a rise in the presence of sexual minorities in Korean films.
Being Normal documents the friendship between Choi and her roommate and classmate, J, a Hermaphrodite. As evidenced in one of the sentences in the above paragraph, the English language presents difficulties when talking about Intersexuals.
Which possessive pronouns do I use to describe J when I need to avoid grammatical gymnastics? Is "he" or "she" "he" or "she"? Will the grammar police just learn to deal with the natural state of language change and allow us to appropriate the third person plurals, "they," "their," and "them" for reasonable use here?
Similar problems will be present for the viewer who knows Korean.T he history of Korean independent documentaries is short -- a legacy of the film policy enforced by Korea's military government that made it illegal for non-registered producers or companies to make films.
