Information

-Synopsis

On April 26th, 2017, Soseongri’s peace was destroyed when the THAAD anti-missile system was deployed with the police forcing their units in as U.S. forces sarcastically watched. Contrary to its primary purpose to stop war, THAAD turned Soseongri into a war zone. To this day, the villagers of Soseongri continue laying themselves on the asphalted roads in their struggle to defend their lives.

-Program Note

The film for a while follows the everyday lives of the old ladies working in the field in the village they were born and raised. Their lives seem to be just like one of the ordinary farming village. The name of the village is ‘Soseongri.’ We might have lived forever without knowing about this village if not for the deploy of THAAD. The lives of old ladies who have been living to their own rhythmes cultivating the crops become a mess with the deploy of THAAD. Soseongri casts the question of relations between the nation and the individual even without putting the certain ideology or political stance. What director PARK Baeil wants for the audience is to witness the people deprived of their rights to decide on their own base. Rather than following the political background and its procedure of THAAD deploy, the film reveals the truth of the national violence depriving the personal life by showing how once peaceful lives of old ladies tremble. The ladies talk about the fear of the Korean War that they experienced. But that fear came from the US army’s bombings and South Korean army's killing of civillians as well as from the North Korean army. Soseongri is trempled once again by our foces not by the enemies. In the name of defense.(AHN Si-hwan)
