About This DVD
Soldiers from the two Koreas rediscover their sense of collective identity in “Welcome to Dongmakgol” Due to powers beyond their control, three North Koreans, two South Koreans and one American are stranded in a remote mountain village during the Korean War in the autumn of 1950.
"Welcome to Dongmakgol," based on a popular theatrical production by Jang Jin, is an allegory in which our heroes must overcome ideological division and the blind destructiveness of war to protect an idealized spiritual connection with nature represented by mountain villagers.
Through the autumn months of their exile, they fall in love with Dongmakgol's village dreamland, and with its spirit of the mountain and a girl's innocence.
But eventually, even this "eden" that Dongmakgol offers is threatened by the war; the real world comes parachuting in on top of them. They are forced to search into themselves, as well as rely on each other, to find the cleverness and ingenuity required to protect Korea's "folk essence," but even that may not be enough.
"Welcome to Dongmakgol" is a fun-filled flick for the whole family _ whether your family is South Korean, North Korean or of any other nationality. It is political, but inclusive and humorous.
