still from “The Woman, The Orphan, And the Tiger”


Jane Jin Kaisen’s film “The Woman, The Orphan, and the Tiger” examines military and patriarchal violence against women and children in the context of international geopolitical negotiations. The film creates a strategic genealogy between three generations of women: the former comfort women who were subjected to sexual slavery by the Japanese military, women who have been sex workers around the U.S. military bases in South Korea, and South Korean international adoptees.

Jane Jin Kaisen is a visual artist born in South Korea and adopted to Denmark in 1980. She has an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and the Unifersity of California Los Angeles.

The artist will be present for a Q&A after the screening.


This event is sponsored by the Danish Arts Council and cosponsored by DePaul’s Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity President’s Diversity Series, Global Asian Studies program, and Women’s and Gender Studies department.
