In Her Place

Cinéastes cœur à cœur

Canada, South Korea

A wealthy woman from Seoul seeks to secretly adopt the unborn child of a troubled teenager from a desolate farm in the South Korean countryside. As the teenager’s pregnancy progresses, their business transaction becomes something that is far more complicated than they first expected.


This film was chosen by Igor Drljača, director of THE WHITE FORTRESS, as part of our Cinéastes cœur à cœur series. The screening will be followed by a discussion between the two filmmakers.
