Program Note
An independent daughter moves into her mother’s house due to financial problems, and brings with her same-sex lover, Rain. Mom is left bewildered. Meanwhile, the mom, who works as a caregiver, strives to provide the best care for Je-hee, an elderly woman who lives alone. Based on the novel of the same name, Concerning My Daughter avoids exaggeration or haste, opting instead to meticulously and calmly develop the narrative. This deliberate approach leads to the poignant exploration of the situation and emotions. The story delves into the dilemma of feeling embarrassed when something that seems unrelated becomes your concern when viewed from a different perspective. The mother refuses to give up on Je-hee out of compassion, while the daughter and Rain find a way to be together, even if it doesn’t align with the traditionally heterosexual-centered notion of family. How different and distant they are from each other, who seek companionship beyond the confines of the family structure? As the mother turns the question inward, the introspective drama deepens and broadens. (JEONG Jihye)
