When I accidentally found out that my grandmother had two names, Oksoon and Chunja, I was fascinated by the countless stories she told me. The distant and the not-so-distant stories, were sometimes trivial, sometimes overwhelming. During the filming, meeting Chunja, whom I had not known, and Oksoon, my maternal grandmother, repeated. I recorded the daily labor of Oksoon, who had lived as a woman and an ordinary citizen through the Japanese colonial days.


I decided to record Chunja, whom I did not know, and Oksoon, my grandmother I had known for years, living the present.
