In Korea, a documentary used to be considered as a part of journalism, and it is accepted as having a distance from arts, personal tastes, or imaginations. However, an artist who paints pictures has used the animation to portray his grandmother’s life. It is not just a technical reason to replace something that cannot be photo- graphed or reproduced.

In 1909 in an undemocratic Sweden, a bastard child is born. Called Hervor, her mother is unmarried, and therefore labelled a ‘whore’ and driven from her home. Hervor grows up in shelters and orphanages, unwanted and rejected by society. When she becomes an adult, she fights for women’s rights and social justice for the thousands of children who were placed in similar situations as her. Artist Knutte Wester spends his childhood...
