“Bloodless” is a ten-minute VR film that deals with camp town comfort women for 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 Dongducheond 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.
A Crayon Film production, Written and Directed by Gina Kim, Produced by Jiyoung Kang and Seonah Kim
