Snow Country (Digital Video, 18 mins, 2013)


Snow Country engages with the representation of trauma through cinematic space, more specifically, the trauma of women being violated, as individuals, and as the victims of Second World War. Comfort women are the term given to the women who were involved in the systematic structure of sexual slavery created by the Japanese military. The film was shot in Norway and Sweden, resonating with Yasunari Kawabata’s novel with the same title.
