Synopsis

The director meets women from Japan, the Philippines and Korea and captures their lives and voices. A variety of women, including a mother (the universal byword for women), a prostitute, a part-timer, an immigrant worker, an old formal comfort woman as well as others, all appear in this film. The journey of the director looking for the women of the three countries resembles that of Isis looking for the body parts of Osiris. However, what she finds is not the distorted old truth which belongs even to men but the pieces of alternative truth which are scattered and need to be connected and newly generated. Her journey is like hopping from one wave to another to reach unexplored coast or jumping from one wormhole to another to the end of the universe. And yet, how similar the lives she came across are! The lives of the women have surprising causes and effects on one another. It is no coincidence that Korean companies bulldoze slums in the Philippines or Japanese laboring women sing Korean activist’s songs. Despite having little in common, the women are somehow connected by a mutually interdependent web of cause and effect. What makes the connection inevitable is the enlightenment and self-awareness within themselves as well as their sympathy and bonds for one another. In addition, there is the female body linking all these in the center of all. The director could be lost among numerous people and anecdotes but she was able to establish well-organized structure, thanks to her introspection and self-awareness as a woman. (KANG Seokpil)
