Program Note
After a face-to-face conversation, Yang Kyungin, who wrote a book on the Jeju Uprising, and Regine-pacis, a Rwandan student studying abroad in Korea, set off together on a journey. Despite the differences in their age, nationality, and occupation, they share one thing in common—they are daughters of massacre survivors. The Daughters of That Day does more than illustrate the similarities between the tragedies of Jeju Uprising and the Rwandan genocide. The healing journey, which gazes into the past and looks to the future, moves from Jeju to Rwanda, and back to Jeju. An old woman who took in a complete stranger of a three-year-old girl; Maria who forgave a murderer to raise her children; Franco, the perpetrator who seeks repentance from Maria. The miraculous journey from silence and avoidance to forgiveness and repentance embraces “the daughters of those days” in unwakeable nightmares and in magnanimity that brings tears to our eyes. (KANG Sowon)
