|Project||Tour of Duty|
There is a declined village in the northern part of Gyeonggi Province. US army-oriented business is not lucrative for the residents anymore. For over 40 years, ‘Mommy Barbie’ has been running a small hamburger restaurant. She is aware that her tedious daily routine will soon come to an end. While roads are newly constructed and half of the buildings in the village are about to be demolished, Mommy Barbie is paid a visit by unexpected guests… Come lurching out of oblivion, forgotten stories unfold over strange villages of Gyeonggi Province, eccentric buildings, a row of houses built along a stretch of the small alley and number-emblazoned doors.
After the Korean War, military dictatorships considered Yanggongju (derogatory terms meaning “western princess”/“yankee whore”) as an important means to earn U.S. dollars, which could help build the industrial economy in Korea. But where are these so-called patriots now? We follow camp town women who have survived and look over a poor and abandoned village in the northern part of Gyeonggi Province. Why did these ladies have to work so hard and just disappear off the face of the Earth? Tour of Duty is a dedicational and obligated voyage to all the memories engraved in the huge camp town.
