i just finished watching this, and god i am so fueled. it’s been a long time since i watched a korean movie that brings up social issues. it’s based on a book about the true story of the mass rape of hearing-impaired students at gwangju inhwa school, and how the government let the criminals get away with it. in terms of cinematics its not doing anything special, but that was the point…director hwang dong-hyuk wanted to portray this reality. i know it seems like spreading this movie around won’t do much, but awareness is the spark to change, and it definitely hit home when it was released in korea. even though i’m not korean, i feel this movie doesn’t talk just about korea, and that everyone needs to be made aware of this.
