This April, I attended the 14th International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul. The festivals’ official trailer and the impressions I gathered throughout the festival made me choose this photograph and title. The photo was taken in late June 2011 before severe floods turned most of Thailand into disaster zones, affecting 13.6 million people and resulting in a total of 815 deaths (with 3 missing).
