Program Note
Men are social animals. The film discusses this from a personal perspective: Cahng Kihoon, who lived through the struggle for democracy in the 1980s and 1990s. The Cahng Kihoon Fake Will Scandal is said to be behind the patriotic martyrs of the 1990s. Cahng Kihoon himself has become a forgotten fixture in Korean history. The film tracks down, not the man in the Fake Will Scandal. This is the Cahng Kihoon the film helps us see, not the character trapped inside a scandal. The film also leads us to take another look at historical figures still living. What have the choices of 1990s bequeathed and taken away for men and society? The film asks many questions as it weaves together the micro and macro histories. A person in history, history in a person, the choices in history, political humans, humane politics… The film recalls the many patriotic martyrs of the 1990s, and helps us reflect on their significance and lives today. Martyrs existed then, and continue to exist today. (LEE Seung-min)
