Young Sun Noh | South Korea, France 2018 | 70 Min. | OmeU
During Japan’s occupation of Korea, a Japanese woman goes to Korea to join her Korean lover. At the end of the Second World War, she brought a girl into the world, then returned to Japan, alone. I dream of this woman, a stranger, my unknown grandmother, deceased, without a name, without a face, isolated between two countries, so near and so far, Korea and Japan. I dream of my mother, also so far away.
Yukiko is a story of missed transmissions, it is an attempt to retrieve fragments of stories, memories in tatters.
