Jeju Island. A favorite vacation spot and a place to be remembered. Despite this, an announcement is made that a navy base will be built at KangJung, a little village on the terrific island. Villagers resistant
to this happening begin their fight. When Jeju-born film critic Yang Yoon-mo's hunger strike is on Tweeter, it leads to a rash of movie professionals visiting and encouraging him. Among them are eight documentary directors, who capture the villagers' struggles and daily lives on camera for one hundred days. One Jeju-born director creates a photographic chronicle with primary school students; indie ands play their music and mount unique performances; a participating filmmaker and his son develop a deep relationship with an elderly village caretaker; yet another conveys its atmosphere through the cultural-politicals patializing of a supermarket as a life center. This work is a documentary jam concert that helps the viewer sense how society operates. (HONG Hyosook)
