Mi-re Kim is an award-winning documentary director and producer. Based in Seoul, Mi-re was born on a small farm in Korea’s North Chungcheong province. She is on the steering committee of the Association of Korean Independent Film & Video. Mi-Re Kim's films often comment on gender discrimination in male-dominated workplaces and the ways that female workers must fight against it. She directed the film Always Dream of Tomorrow in 2001, and most recently completed the 2013 documentary Sanda, about the daily lives of middle-aged workers at a telecom company in Korea. The documentary has won praise for its examination of the way real workers are surviving by just scraping by–especially in the current economic climate.
