In this episode, I explore Ounie Lecomte’s moving 2009 debut feature film, “A Brand New Life.” The film is based on Lecomte’s own life and centers around a 9-year-old girl who is abandoned by her father at an orphanage in Seoul in 1975. I discuss the film’s themes of abandonment, loss, loneliness, and the marginalization of women. I also talk about more general things at the beginning of the episode, like why the Her Head in Films podcast means so much to me and why I am putting so much of myself into it.
