“In 1992, I protested the failure to bring justice to the murder of a sex worker by a US military personnel stationed in South Korea. 25 years later, I created Bloodless to transform this silenced history into a sensory experience of empathy as a witness of women who fell between the laws of two countries.”

Bloodless is a 12-minute VR film that deals with camp town sex workers for the US army stationed in South Korea since the 1950s. The film traces the last living moments of a real-life sex worker who was brutally murdered by a US soldier at the Dongducheon Camptown in South Korea in 1992. Portraying the last hours of her life in the camp town, the VR film transposes a historical and political issue into a personal and concrete experience. This film was shot on location where the crime took place, bringing to light ongoing experiences at the 96 camp towns near or around the US military bases.
