I Am A Horse

The Film All-Nighter

Where are the girls?
Unable to find girls in the diverse artwork of the Korean artist Lee Jung-seob, Chaerin Im unravels an imaginative tale of women born with half of their bodies being a horse and a tiger. These roaming women are too fierce and free to match their given role as a daughter, wife, and mother in the patriarchal society.
The tale is inspired by the Korean birth dreams (Tae-mong), of her mom when she was pregnant with her twin sister and herself.
