Program Note
Nakdong River is, along with The Street of Sun (1952) and A Bouquet of Thirty Million People (1951), one of the important films made during the Korean War that the Korean Film Archive has rediscovered and made available to the public. It is in intact condition without any sound or image loss and thus has a high value as a film record. It was produced by Moomyung Film Research, which was founded by a photographer Kim Jae-moon and the Folk Culture Research Association organized by the artists based in Busan city, with the support of Gyeongnam Provincial Government in 1951. The following February, it was released at the Boomin Theater. It opens with a scene of Jo Yong-ja dancing and, based on Lee Eun-sang’s poem Nakdong River, consists of three parts: Nakdong River of Tradition, Nakdong River of Victory, and Nakdong River of Hope. It is in the form of a semi-documentary symphonizing acting sequences where actors Lee Tackyun and Choe Ji-ae appear and real video footages of Nakdong River and the War.
