Blood Sisters
Blood Sisters | Kim Yideum
1 post | 1 read
Blood Sisters tells the story of Jeong Yeoul, a young Korean college student in the 1980's, when the memory of President Chun Doohwan's violent suppression of student demonstrations against martial law was still fresh. Yideum captures with raw honesty the sense of dread felt by many Korean women during this time as Jeong struggles in a swirl of misguided desires and hopelessness against a society distorted by competing ideologies, sexual violence, and cultural conservatism. Facing this helplessness, her impulse is to escape into the world of art. Blood Sisters is a vivid, powerful portrayal of a womans efforts to live an authentic life in the face of injustice.

ReadingEnvy This feels very contemporary with fragments, broken families, complicated relationships, and this darker threat in the background. A good read for #WITmonth 5mo
