Program Note

Middle-aged Myung-ja submits her application to enter the amateur swimming competition. Middle schooler Ji-gyu also submits her application. However, the two have the same swimming record. The instructor from swimming class wants Ji-gyu to enter the competition and asks Myung-ja to withdraw. Rising Star subtly but sadly depicts the appearance-centered thought microscopically permeated into our society. Regardless of their ability to swim, they are judged by how they ‘look.’ A film about the stereotypes we can easily form in our daily lives. It also deals with the critical issue naturally and persuasively.
