Island of Stone

Island of stone takes place in Gangjeong village on Jeju Island at the southernmost point of South Korean territory. Currently a naval base is being constructed despite years of fierce protests from residents. The Naval Base is expected to host the majority of the South Korean Navy as well as the US military. Thus it will complete a strategic missile defense shield in the East Asian region, connecting to Guam and Okinawa. In this video questions of unjust process and civil responsibility are raised through an encounter with film critic Mr.Yang Yun Mo who was imprisoned for his civil disobedience after the film was completed.
