Information

-Synopsis

This film is an 88-day bicycle trip for peace that goes through Taiwan-Okinawa-Korea. It shows the landscapes the two young men pass through
and the stories of the people they bond with during their trip. This is an embarrassing confession by the director who used to be indifferent and
ignorant to the world as well as the documentation of those who gave up their places in the name of solidarity.

-Program Note

Two young friends choose to literally embark on a journey instead of soul searching. They cross the sea on their bikes to reach Taiwan and Okinawa where they encounter the daily struggle of the people there to shut down nuclear plants or stop military bases. This reminds the two friends of their comrades back in Korea and also that the life of the people fighting in a distant land is no different from the ones taking place in Miryang and Gangjeong in Korea. They reconfirm this is the pending reality of others as well. Subsequently, they tour through the Gangjeong Village and Paengmok Harbor to finally return to where they had started. And the confession of, “There is not one single place or person without any wounds” marks the end to the friend’s agonizing trip which started late autumn and ended in winter. The people’s solidarity may seem small and pitiful in the face of great capital and power, yet it is for this very reason, it is more than beautiful, because it will never stop despite being crushed and ignored. (LEE Yong Cheol)
