Review

How complicated and contradictory a person´s life is! So is the life of KIM Soonak, which the documentary Comfort presents. KIM Soonak had been forced into a "comfort woman" by the Japanese Imperial Army and lived a miserable life. After liberation, she lived in the prostitute quarters to survive, did sex business in the US military camp town, and peddled goods from the US military. Director Emmanuel Moonchil PARK has a deep relationship with the JEONJU IFF and presents us the pictorial records of a character´s life as it is, instead of glamorizing and talking up it. The film stands out for delicate directing, by reading aloud the testimony of KIM Soonak in the local dialect and using various media such as animations and videos from archive. [MOON Seok]
