The Poem, My Old Mother
Director / Writer
In a small rural village in Jeollanam-do, senior ladies learn to read and write from Mrs. Kim at a 'Sall Library at the Road,' a community library and learning center. When they were young, they couldn't go to school because their families were poor. Getting married, they couldn't make time for their education while raising their children and supporting family. After the long and suffering years, they finally have an opportunity for education, a chance to tell their stories with their own words. Their beautiful works were published as a book in 2016. The documentary follows the senior poets' daily lives as they write about their lives of joy, laughter, tears, and happiness.
