YesAsia Editorial Description

In a career spanning half a century, director Im Kwon Taek has found worldwide acclaim and iconic status in his native South Korea for his great contributions to Korean cinema. Though the legendary filmmaker has made over 100 films, most of them are unavailable on video. Released in 1983, Daughter of Fire is one of the few early Im Kwon Taek films available on DVD. Daughter of Fire is notable among Im's works for its focus on shamanism, a topic he first explored in 1979's The Divine Bow. In the film, a son's look into his late shaman mother's past reveals a tragic life story of rituals and repression, and a traditional belief system intrinsic to Korean culture.

Magazine editor Hae Jun's (Park Keun Hyung) daughter is gravely ill and his religiously zealous wife and mother-in-law are trying to heal her through prayer. He himself is troubled by hallucinations of a woman on fire and the sounds of exorcism rituals. After seeing a psychologist, Hae Jun realizes that his illness is connected to his mother, and he returns to his hometown in search for answers. Hae Jun's mother (Bang Hee) was a shaman who went mad after being banned from performing exorcisms because of the government's anti-shamanism movement in the sixties. Abused by the men in her life and torn from her true calling, she eventually walked into flames to end her life.
