AAK! PSA: Red Maria

Below is an interesting event in Seoul:

[Red Maria <레드마리아> film screening 상영회 + Q&A with Director Kyung Soon 경순 감독과의 대화]

★ YOU MUST RSVP via Email: womens.global.solidarity@gmail.com ★

In Korea, Japan and The Philippines, there are many women with diverse jobs and her stories. Among them, this film focuses on women who are called housewives, sex workers, dispatched workers, migrant workers, comfort women, homeless and so on. The camera tracks them as they go about their everyday lives. These women have never met one another, and their lives look quite different from one another. However, their lives are connected across national borders by the one thing they have in common. That's their bodies and labor. How can such different forms of labor be linked to the women's bodies in such a similar way? As we search for answers to this question, we are forced to confront another question: 'the meaning of labor' as an ideology that is reproduced in society.

  1. That movie looks deeply interesting, I wish I could purchase a copy.

  2. Ever since a friend told me the plot of this movie I've been deeply interested to it. This kinda gave me inspiration of some sorts. Women of these stature must still be respected and look upon.
