Kyung Sung Lee . Creative VaQi . Seoul . South Korea

A Documentary Panorama of a Society with Generational Chasms

The two generations being brought together by director Kyung Sung Lee share a meal of rice and a discussion: four actors in their mid-30s, born at the time of the democratic resistance to the Korean military dictatorship, concealed behind a puppet regime. And Ae Soon, the director’s former nanny, born in 1941, when the country was still a Japanese colony. Together with the actors, Ae Soon tells stories from her life, from the Korean War through to the country’s unprecedented economic expansion into one of the Asian “tiger economies” in the 1980s. Historical film footage and the comments of the young performers, who often attribute a very different meaning to the same facts, accompany her stories. It becomes increasingly apparent that the current prosperity of the young is dependent on the efforts of the older generations. “Now I can say with certainty that I’m happy,” says Ae Soon. “I live at a happy time. Don’t I?”
