Program Note
Kim Chang-in, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and Kim Hyun-jin, who calls himself an “extremely moderate centrist, ” are ordinary youth of the Republic of Korea. Chang-in is motivated to become involved in politics after seeing the bleeding laborers at the Ssangyong Motors strike, while Hyun-jin decides to enter politics out of frustration that he believes taxes are being squandered on populist policies such as minimum wage and earned income subsidies. SHOW ME THE JUSTICE chronicles the journey of the two impassioned youths as they delve into the world of politics. Director Lee Ilha records their ups and down objectively, without taking sides or offering any commentary, but the editing that contrasts their opposing views infuses the film with an uproarious and lively energy. SHOW ME THE JUSTICE, as the parodic title suggests, seems like a performance, with its theme focused more on Korea’s youth than politics. (KANG Sowon)
