New Woman: Her First Song (2004) explores the political, historical, and
cultural constructions, achievements and contradictions of the "New Woman"
phenomena of North East Asia from the 1920-1930s. Taking as its prismatic
focus the life and work of the painter and writer Na Haesuk, the film
catalyzes its own poetics to incite an open-ended dialogue across the
histories of the New Woman of Korea, Japan, and China. This film has been
screened at the Seoul Women's Film Festival and the EBS-TV International
Documentary Film Festival among others.
