Jesa is a South Korean tradition honouring family ancestors. A glorious feast is offered to the deceased on the anniversary of the death. In this playful and delightful film the director dialogues with her family over Skype about traditions, gender roles and Korean History. The result is a gentle yet emblematic confrontation that unveils a lot about the contradiction and the transformations that South Korea must face.
