Overview

Farmers, seeking excellent rice yields from 330 ha of reclaimed farmland in Seosan city, don’t look as happy as they should be. A story dating back 50 years, the dark side of history, explains it all.

Review

Lee Johoon, who minutely analyzed in his previous work ''BLACKDEAL''(2014) why privatizations of public enterprises in many countries during the neo-liberalism were disastrous cozy relations between politics and business, is revealing state violence in ''Land of Sorrow''. When the reclamation project of Seosan started in 1961, people were compulsively sent there and worked like prisoners. They were even married regardless of there will and forced to settle thare. The government didn’t keep the promise they would give them reclaimed lands. Historical situation about Seosan reclamation workers is incredibly shocking and it thoroughly shows violence and corruption of the Park Junghee regime. It is a journalism documentary that with various materials including lively interviews with people involved in the incident and footage, as well as reenactment of play. [KIM Youngjin]
