Synopsis
[Shared Streets] portrays the daily life of three characters; CHOI Young-im, owner of the snack bar called “Samteo (Oasis)”; Jerry K, underground Hip Hop MC; and AHN Sang-min, a social activist. The camera follows their changes as seasons pass by and preserves their hopes and dreams for the community they are living in.
Director's Note
What makes so many people maintain their lives in this world? I hope to find the source of their strength from a tiny change in the world and the warm, sensitive eyes to value that change. I will tell of the hope that comes from the solidarity of local community, in a quiet tone.
