CAN HISTORY SHOW US WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE?
"Crossroads” explores the ever changing face of South Korea since the Sewol ferry disaster that tragically killed 304 people, mainly high school children, in April 2014.
The film takes us on a journey through Korean modern history exploring the changes the country has gone through since April 16th 2014.
It encompasses emotional re-enactment narrations from survivors, interviews with family members, activists, historians and the general public, as we go in search of how Korea came to yet another crossroad in its history.
Will the raising of the sunken Sewol ferry reveal the truth about the accident, hidden for so long?
Can the families finally put their loved ones to rest, and allow themselves time to grieve after their endless struggles and never ending battles with an ever oppressive government intent on hiding the facts? Can the new Sewol generation alter the destiny of South Korea and bring about much needed reform after the impeachment of the President? Will the Chaebols continue to rule? Will the silent majority continue to hold sway over a young, fresh and vibrant generation, all of whom are fighting for change in what appears to be a dysfunctional system?
At a time in the world where people feel so divided can what is happening in South Korea provide a beacon of hope for others around the world?
