On 25 June 1950, the North Korean army invaded South Korea, violating a truce struck at the end of World War II, and starting a conflict that would bring the U.S., China, and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war. By August 1950, the North Koreans had pushed the ill-prepared American and United Nations forces into a small area around the port city of Pusan. Facing strong opposition from President Truman and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Douglas MacArthur launched a massive invasion of the port of Inchon and went on to recapture Seoul, turning the tide of the war. When the North Koreans retreated to their homeland, MacArthur followed them, assuring a skeptical Truman that the Chinese would not enter the war. Little did he know that Chairman Mao was sending a quarter-million troops into North Korea to repel the Americans and take the whole peninsula. Our Time in Hell tells the story of the Korean War with newsreels, old footage and extensive interviews with American soldiers.

Madame Freedom is the most famous work and biggest success of the 1950s, and is also the film that aroused the most arguments in the history of Korean cinema, dealing with the affair of a professor’s wife. This film must also be noted historically for presenting the commercial potential of the genre of the modern drama for the first time. The DVD includes an introduction of the piece that explores the era when the film was made and the film’s significance in Korean film history, as well as a foreword written by director Han Hyeong-mo. More notably, actor Lee Min, who played the part of Shin Choon-ho, the college student who has an affair with Madame Oh, the wife of a professor, recounts the social and cultural setting of the ‘50s in the 40 minute documentary portion that is added as a special feature to the DVD.

I’ll Be Seeing Her: Images of Women in Korean Cinema is the latest work of Kim Soyoung, a film scholar and filmmaker, commissioned by the Ministry of Gender Equality to be permanently exhibited in the Women’s History Exhibition Hall collecting vast material of Korean film history from the very early years through the 1950s to the present, the film rearranges images and excerpts of Korean films using key words to reappropriate ‘the women on the silver screen’ in a female perspective. A study on women’s images in Korean films and women’s perspective of Korean film history, the film is rich with interviews of ‘the women off the silver screen,’ that is, women spectators and women film professionals, who gathered in Pusan, Jinju, and Seoul. They have visions of cinema being a ‘women’s field’ in the digital age. WFFIS intends to extend, share, and reflect on the ecstatic moments when women on and off the silver screen encounter one another in a space beyond time at this special screening. (Kwon Eun-sun)
