I'm looking into Korean funerary traditions, and would be so grateful for
any suggestions as to where to start to address some of the following

1. Are there any sources you'd recommend that describe ethnographers
working in Korea? And any Korean artists or filmmakers who produced their
own works of anti-ethnography (thinking of Trinh T Minh Ha but Korean?)
2. Are there particular sources you'd recommend for historical photos or
film footage of funerary rituals, the Gwangju massacre, or shamanic rituals
in Korea?
3. What roles did Sesup-mu female shamans play within the funerary
traditions of the Jeolla provinces? I'm very interested in any authors who
might have written generally about the gendered elements of funerary
rituals, and the role of these female shamans.

I am very new to Korean studies and unfortunately am not able to read
Korean, so my apologies if I am asking dumb questions!

Many thanks,
