AFTER THE SEWOL

On the 16th April 2014 South Korea was changed as a nation. After the days, weeks and months that followed the Sewol tragedy, the country became undone, untrusting and more divided than we have ever seen in its history.

AFTER THE SEWOL explores the changing faces of this nation through the eyes of two British film makers. They talk with relatives of the victims, rescue divers and activists about their struggles and battles since this tragic accident happened and embark upon a journey to uncover how this accident came about, looking deep into Korean history about why no action was taken to prevent it in the first place.

This journey takes them all over Korea, meeting an older generation struggling to create a safer place for their children to live in and a young vibrant generation fighting for a corrupt free society.

But, all of them searching for one thing, the truth about why the Sewol victims died.

 

AFTER THE SEWOL은 영국 출신의 두 감독의 눈으로 변화하는 한국의 모습을 담고 있다. 사건 이후 정부에 대항한 힘든 투쟁을 하고 있는 희생자 가족, 수중 구조 다이버, 사회 운동가와의 인터뷰를 통해, 이 사건이 일어난 이유와, 예방하지 못했던 근본적인 이유에 대해 이야기하고 있다.

2014년 4월 16일 그날 이후, 대한민국이라는 국가는 변했다. 세월호 사건이 발생한 그날 이후, 몇 주, 몇 달,몇 년이 흘렀지만 별다른 성과는 보이지 않는다. 정부는 국민들의 신뢰를 잃고, 국민들은 역사상 전례 없이 편가르기를 하였다.

영화는 전국 방방곡곡에서 안전한 한국 사회로 나아가기 위해 힘쓰는 기성세대와, 부패한 사회에 대항하여 싸우는 젊은 세대들의 이야기를 모두 담고 있다. 이들이 원하는 것은 단 하나였다. 세월호 희생자들의 죽음에 대한 진실, 바로 그 하나 뿐 이었다.
