Dear Mother (엄마에게)
Matthew Kaundart and I met a few years ago when I shot a short film that he directed called "Till Death Do Us Part". Since that time he has become one of my favorite directors to collaborate with and we have shot a handful of really cool projects together. My favorite piece we have worked on together was just recently released by Paper Magazine and featured on Film Shortage.
"Dear Mother" follows Kayla Tange a performance artist and exotic dancer and serves as a letter to the mother that gave her up for adoption in Korea, but is a testament to the mother that raised her and the family and love that surrounds her.
