I am More
LEE Ilha | 2021 | Documentary | Color | DCP | 81min 25sec (K, E)
The neon sign of the Itaewon club "Trans" lights up. The show of More, a dancer with 20 years of experience, begins and the audience cheers and tips freely over the stage. More's dream was to be a "ballerina." People said to him, "Abandon your femininity," and his dreams were thwarted. John Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, who visited Korea for a performance, accidentally saw More's show and left him with the meaningful words, “Let's meet in New York.” Then one day, an invitation for performance arrives from New York.
This documentary is a Drag Show which More performs on the stage called world, while also being a petition she files to the general public who refuses to recognize her as its member. I attempt to picture an artist’s bildungsroman challenging her limits in a new way, via the medium of musical combined with documentary.
