Take Care of My Cat

Take Care of My Cat

Jeong Jae-eun’s debut feature, Take Care of My Cat, beautifully captures the essence of camaraderie between five high school girls and how their dynamics shift as they enter adulthood. Five friends grow apart as their lives take them in different directions until a stray cat shows up. Jeong’s sophisticated perceptions of girlhood and womanhood are employed in her intricate cinematic language used to portray friendships and the way environment and life changes influence relationships.
