Fighter follows Jin-ah, a North Korean refugee who is struggling to earn enough money to bring her father to South Korea. She takes a job as a cleaner at a boxing gym, where it’s discovered that she is actually a decent boxer. Portraying the physical and mental fight of a woman plagued by prejudice, Jero Yun’s second film is realistic, emotionally raw, and sure to pack a punch.  Introduction by Hyeyon Moon (UVA)

This is a foreign-language film presented with English subtitles.

This film is part of the Korean Film Series supported by Korean Cultural Center – Washington, D.C. and UVA Korea Society.
