Kim Dong-won’s 2004 video documentary explores an ideological and personal mess, bravely refusing to simplify or preach. A liberal South Korean, Kim befriended a group of North Korean spies who had refused to “convert.” After decades in prison, these newly released old men remain dedicated socialists who hope for both repatriation and reunification. Are they martyrs who endured torture in prison for a cause, or naive fools? Kim takes his time, letting us see how the division of Korea has left everyone, himself included, knotted in confusion. What begins as a portrait of a few individuals becomes a probing look at two nations. In Korean with subtitles. 149 min.
