Review

Farmer NOH Byungman´s father was taken to a Japanese mine during the Japanese occupation. After returning to his homeland, he died from an illness. Byungman often goes to Japan to hold a one-person protest to demand the Japanese government to be responsible. CHOI Kyungsook’s father CHOI Jongduk lived on Dokdo (Liancourt Rocks) from the 1960s until his death in 1987. While leading a commemorative project for her father, Kyungsook often visits Dokdo. Both Byungman and Kyungsook are devoted to follow the wills of their fathers. American documentary filmmaker Mathew KOSHMRL takes the lives of these two characters as a medium to show the issues surrounding Dokdo. It not only talks about the problems of the Japanese government, but also the Korean government, with a new perspective from an outsider’s point-of-view. [MOON Seok]
