“Human Rights Night in CUK” was held in Tteul Ane Jageun Namu(뜰안에작은나무) on June 2 at 6:30 p.m. This event was hosted by the human rights community "Gada" in CUK, as a joint project with the Bucheon Solidarity. It was held under the theme of "Freedom".
The event was held with video viewing and talking activities. The first video was a documentary which is titled "Protective Color," breaking away from socially forced masculinity and femininity. It was a graduation documentary of the Department of Sociology of CUK, which contains the direct experience of two CUK students. The second video is a documentary titled "Meet a Female Homeless," which shows the difficulties faced by a female homeless and the process of raising problems and seeking solutions.
After watching the video, the conversation session with the director and the cast of the documentary "The Protective Color" continued. Students could hear stories about the motivation of making the documentary under the theme of awareness of fixed gender and the episodes in the process of filming it and the changes that followed.
Yoon Sang-yeon, who had experienced wearing a skirt for a week to break away from stereotypes about masculinity, said, "I could feel the attention that focused on me wherever I went while wearing a skirt. I want to try filming a sequel with a short skirt which is considered a symbol of femininity."
"We need freedom for common and freedom to live differently," the representative of "Gada" said after the talking activities, “The documentary "Protective Color" would be the freedom to live differently, and the documentary " Meet a Female Homeless" would be the freedom that everyone should have in common, including the right to live and not to be exposed to crime." “Human Rights Night in CUK” would be an opportunity for the participants to reconsider the meaning of various freedoms and human rights.
