Screening followed by Q&A with film’s director, Kim Jung-eun.

The film opens to mum Gyeong-ah’s face – she is on a video call with daughter, Yeon-su, who has moved away from home. Care-worker Gyeong-ah lives by herself. Yeon-su is her mother’s rock, but Gyeong-ah barely ever sees her daughter now that she’s moved out. Yeon-su is struggling with her ex-boyfriend, who refuses to let go of their relationship. One day, Yeon-su’s ex forwards a video to Yeon-su’s family and acquaintances, and her world comes crumbling down. Gyeong-ah is appalled by the video, and it drives a huge wedge between her and her daughter. Yeon-su, despite isolating herself from everyone, fights alone to get her life back, and Gyeong-ah does what she can to help her.

Gyeong-ah’s Daughter is a thoughtful consideration of digital sex crime, as well as the complex relationship between mother and daughter.
