Followed by a digital Q&A with the director

While working on her first documentary film, director Areum meets a progressive party activist and a chef, Seongman, and gets married. After getting married, she takes Seongman with her to study in France. Not being able to read or speak the language leaves Seongman in depression, when Areum, the one responsible for their financial and administrative duties, gets pregnant. Will Areum be able to juggle both her marriage and her film?
Areum Parkkang’s (Yeongam, South Korea) first feature film Areum (2016) was invited to the First Appearance Competition section at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. After moving to France in 2015, she started studying feminist videos at Fine Arts School of Nord-Pas de Calais. While traveling between Korea and France, she looks closely at how women can voice their thoughts politically in a patriarchal society while working on her films and video projects. Areum Married (2019) is her second feature documentary.
