Fortune Teller is a research film about South Korean aircrews’ cosmic radiation exposure on intercontinental flights. Through the interview with Captain Heebok Ahn (Korean Air), the film reviews the current working condition of the aircrews, and compares the case with a historical industrial accident of the 1920s—Radium Girls. Fortune Teller suggests the ongoing precarious situation of women’s labour with these two exemplary cases.
