Synopsis

No adolescents are free from competition for university places. Here are three teenagers who take a little different path. Chang-joon (aka. Mangchang), Beom (aka. Taepyong) and Seo-young (aka. Soul), the trio undertook the two-year trip, an innovative learning platform of alternative school called Road Schola. After finishing this travelling course, they are currently taking up the internship. Each of them plans a travel project such as youth group mountaineering expeditions in Nepal’s Annapurna Himalaya and weekend trip school. Experiences in project execution will serve them well in the future. The director follows these three interns including the director herself. Alternative school provides a different style of education for teenagers to lead them to learn and study. And it’s definitely not an easy course to follow. Once they were given the chance to go on a trip under the guidance of mentors. Now they develop tour itinerary, promote the travel packages and take children to Nepal and Vietnam. As much as the students wrestle with and assimilate their textbooks at school, the best learning on the road happens outside of the workbooks as well. In this society where school attendance is considered mandatory, teenagers take a different approach to school education. Why do we have to go to school? Is school education the only route to realize our dreams? Less Than 1% will hopefully give you some answers to these questions. (PARK Hye-mi)

Director

  • HA Seo-young

    For 6 years, Ha Seo-young went to two alternative schools, Gandhi Village School and Road Schola. She was a chief editor of the school newsletter, RoadRock. While continued writing, Ha has been inundated with questions such as: “Aren’t you planning go to college?”, “What high school do you go to?” and “Aren’t you supposed to be in school?”. To clean up all these questions, she decided to make a documentary Less Than 1%. Less Than 1% (2012)​
