The Seoul Film Club
A short film exploring the myth, in several Asian cultures, of the girl in the scarlet mask–the ghost of a young woman who met an early and tragic fate. A cautionary tale warning against pride and vanity, the scarlet-masked specter appears to young women–their fate hinging on their response to her question, “Do you think I’m pretty?” Written and directed by a military veteran.
