The Omnivorous Family
- 한국 환경영화의 흐름
|Synopsis||This film takes place during the winter of last year when there was a nationwide slaughter of livestock to put a stop to the foot-and-mouth outbreak. Filmmaker Yun goes deep into the mountains to meet a pig farmer who was raising his pigs in an old fashioned manner. As Yun observes the daily routines of the sow ‘Ship-Soon’ and her piglet ‘Don-Soo’, she discovers new facts she had never known before… As she develops a bond with the lovely pigs and acknowledges another side of the farm, it becomes more difficult for her to enjoy pork cutlets as|
she used to. And to make matters worse, her husband and young son Do-Young isn’t making her choice of daily menus easier. As she falls into a deep dilemma, what is there in store for her now?
