Director's Statement

As I have been working on the ‘Exile Trilogy’ ( etc.) in Central Asia, I came to know the existence of JU, Sejuk as well as Cosmodrome the launching pad in Kazakhstan. I hope to evoke a new link and a constellation with a socialist feminist who fought under the colonial rule for women and the world. Inviting socialist feminist Flora Tristan to this space by reanimating JU, Sejuk's writing, I wanted to show long-lasting entanglements among revolutionary women.
