The Woman, The Orphan, and The Tiger follows a group of international
adoptees and other women of the Korean diaspora in their twenties &
thirties. It explores the ways in which trauma is passed on from
previous generations to the present through a sense of being haunted.
The physical return of the diaspora confronts and destabilises
narratives that have been constructed to systematically silence
histories of injustice committed onto certain parts of the population in
South Korea. The film exposes how military and
patriarchal violence against women and children became central in
geopolitical negotiations between South Korea, the United States, and
Japan, and how this part of world history has been systematically
silenced, but reverberates in the present moment.
