|Project||Watching, The Labor Movement!|
In 2011, two young filmmakers got on the Hope Bus heading to Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction,Co.,Ltd.. After joining the campaign ride five times, they dare to ask themselves some Marx’s questions - why a revolution occurs and why it fails. By taking different points of view based on their own experiences and intuition, each director attempts a dialectical analysis on the Hope Bus campaign and history of the Korean labor movements.
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. - Karl Marx June Democracy Movement and laborer’s strike (1987), the protest against labor law reforms (1997), Candle Demonstration against U.S. Beef (2008) and Hope Bus campaign (2011)… From civil rights movements to labor movements, all these battles stoked the flames of revolution in ‘people’s mind’. But the people soon forgot about them. The untold history repeats itself alternating between hope and despair. Hopefully, this set of variations lingering between a state of hope and despair will eventually turn into a dazzling victory anthem. And I do hope that our little musical notes of dialectic appreciation can be in tune with the long history of struggle.
