Program note

The March of the Fools is a full-length picture showing the youth of the time. Based on CHOI Inho′s novel of the same name, published in a series on Daily Sports, it depicts the frustration and anxiety of young people in the 1970s in three dimensions. It is a creative reflection of the director′s artistic spirit that sensed the oppression and anxiety of the youth in the ‘70s, while maintaining the cheerful tone of a late teen film. As a result, the film shows an exquisite balance between the outside and the inside of the youth in the ‘70s from the clash of demands as a pop commercial film and the director′s sense of reality. Expressing the chaotic atmosphere with bold camera work, it delivers the message easily and clearly through the straightforward music. A rhythmical production resembling music and poetry proves the true value of director HA Gil-jong. (SONG Kyungwon)
