The Screen Guide

South Korea's 'Sunshine Policy' under President Kim Dae-Jung's presidency has opened up unprecedented business and cultural contact with the communist North. These Seoul diaries from March 1998 to October 2000 follow the rush North and its paradoxes through personal encounters. It raises the issue of the anachronistic National Security Law, which prohibits 'praising and encouraging' North Korea, through cases against the producers of a children's book and an artist. At the time of completion of the film the law still has not been amended. The film gives voice to hopes and aspirations for reunification, as well as anxiety and resistance in a range of people in the South and shows changes in attitudes and openness in post-summit Korea.
