Moonlit Winter

Part of the Queer East Film Festival Season


Moonlit Winter tells the story of Saebom, a high school student living with her mother Yunhee, who has become depressed following a recent divorce. Yunhee never shares her feelings with her daughter, so when Saebom finds a love letter sent to Yunhee from Hokkaido in Japan, she begins to wonder about her mother’s mysterious past. Sensing the opportunity for them to develop a closer relationship, Saebom concocts a plan to find the sender of the letter, and the two embark on a trip to Hokkaido. Exploring the liberating effects of generational change, Moonlit Winter is a heartfelt tale about a woman revisiting her hidden past. The film won several prizes, including Best Director and Best Screenplay at the Blue Dragon Awards and the Korean Association of Film Critics Awards.

With a short in-person introduction from Queer East Film Festival's director Yi Wang and a pre-recorded introduction by Jinhee Choi, King’s College London.
