Overview

Documentary filmmaker, Christine Choy, tracks down three exiled dissidents from the Tiananmen Square massacre in order to find closure on an abandoned project since she began shooting in 1989.

Review

University students and citizens protesting for democracy in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China since May 1989, were brutally suppressed by the People’s Liberation Army tanks and armored vehicles on June 4th. Shortly thereafter, Wu'er Kaixi, one of the student leaders, Yan Jiaqi, director of the Institute of Political Science at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and Wan Runnan, founder of the Stone Corporation, China’s first tech start-up, were identified as central figures in the protests and managed to escape to the United States. At the time, American documentary director Christine Choy started filming a documentary about them, but the filming stopped when the production costs ran out. The Exiles depicts Choy who met these three “exiles” again after about 30 years. Choy, who has a Korean father and a Chinese mother, is also an “outsider” who was born in China and raised in Korea, so their meeting feels quite meaningful. This film is interesting just by showing Choy’s free-spirited attitude, who smokes anytime and anywhere. [MOON Seok]
