Synopsis

I moved to the reunion. While organizing the luggage with my younger brother, we talked and faced real places where we felt unequal again. They were very ordinary places. In addition, the effects of misogyny, such as moving, Alba, and daily life were hidden throughout my life. It is a documentary that is my own story and also the story of every woman.

Why am I living here?​

Review

Is the private is public? Is the line between documentary and fiction vague? Sister's Room updates these two questions that have always been important in any discussion of a private documentary on women. The story begins with a woman who has just moved to a new place. Her sister helps her unpack and the two talk about this and that. While their conversation continues, the camera is left on the top of the last box they have just brought in, which means we are given a limited view and can only listen to them from an isolated position as if watching something captured on a candid camera. The younger one is a high school student, and she wonders why her sister has moved to a dodgy area surrounded by motels. The older sister replies "You'll find out soon enough." They talk about the fitting model incident, Gangnam Station exit no. 10, and sexual assaults. They mean to offer a commentary on the social dangers that women are exposed to. Women are driven to the periphery by memories of crimes. In the end, an hourglass is turned upside down and the countdown begins. Yet, we do not know what that time is for. [KIM Sohee]
