For as long as there have been U.S. army bases in South Korea, there have been “camptowns” that service the interests of American GIs – in particular sexual services. Directors Park Kyoung-tae and Kim Dong-ryung reveal the dark legacy and devastating effects of the sex trade in U.S. military camptowns through the painful, unsettling testimonies of three former prostitutes. Employing a unique, experimental approach that eschews genre convention, this documentary transforms readily in its presentation, from traditional interviews to fiery narration over symbolic imagery to performance art, to evoke the ghosts of past and present that haunt the women.
