  • Figure 2.9. Spring of Korean Peninsula (Bando-ui bom, Korea, 1941): Both the scroll (left) and subtitle (right) are brushed, but one is so cursive it is virtually illegible while the other is designed for easy reading. The scroll is in Chinese, suggesting an upper class family, but the subtitle for this Korean film is in Japanese, the language of the colonizer.
