Reviews
"A film documenting guerrilla theater that took place during an abortion rally in 1969. Women playing the roles of a capitalist, an advertiser, a boyfriend, and a mother demand a young woman become the ideal woman, a beautiful and efficient wife who can perfectly tend to household chores. In a public space where there is no separate stage, the performers become one with the audience with whom they discuss each of their roles and relationships. The audience exhibit direct and unfiltered agreement and anger. A lively and effective consciousness-raising takes place on film." - Cho Hye-young, International Women's Film Festival in Seoul
