The Shaman Sorceress by Ahn Jae-huun will open the 3rd PyeongChang International Peace Film Festival which will take place from June 17th – 22nd, 2021.
About the festival:
The PyeongChang International Peace Film Festival aims to create a peace mood in Korean Peninsula through cultural exchange and encourage to make films with themes of peace, coexistence and prosperity by supporting competitive sections.
There is a tragic history behind the painting titled The Shaman Sorceress, left in the home by a mute girl and her father. With husband and daughter by her side, Mohwa devoted her life to practicing shamanistic rites. She is rejoined by her long-estranged son, who turns out to be a converted Christian. The ensuing religious conflict between the two grows more and more intense until a tragedy strikes. (PIPFF 2021)
