Review

In Seongju, a farming county in Gyeongsang-do, people are protesting against the placement of THAAD. Young mothers protest because they are worried about their children being exposed to radiation. They soon learn that the weapon is good for nothing. These mothers, who were less interested in social issues, now take the lead. They were shocked when their governor suddenly agrees to place the THAAD.
Emmanuel Moonchil Park’s second feature-length documentary follows the daily lives of the ordinary housewives in political strife. While not ignoring the partiality associated with this type of documentary, it creates a sense of intimacy by showing how the ordinary people without any political awareness become interested in goodness for the community. It makes us realize that politics is something that penetrates our daily lives. [KIM Youngjin]
