Synopsis

Gipeusil, the town where my grandmother lives, is changing due to the construction of Yeongju Dam as a part of the Four Major River Project. There are only about a dozen houses left in Gipeusil where time seems to have stopped. While the moving date is postponed endlessly, the villagers see their neighbors off and continue to make their living on this torn-apart land.

Review

Gipeusil starts with a question about the Four Major Rivers Project. Upon hearing the news that her grandmother’s house is about to be demolished due to the construction of Yeong-ju Dam, the director begins to capture on camera the people of Gipeusil Village that is to be submerged under water. The film calmly points out the problems of the project pursued as part of Korea’s Green New Deal policy through the narration and poetic images of elderly ladies who have lost their living foundations, young students who have been forced to leave their school and the ruins left behind. Although Gipeusil Village is gone, the elderly women continue to live their lives by planting seeds in the new land and cultivating crops. The past cannot be undone, but they cherish the memories of all the precious things that quietly disappeared under the violent and barbaric policy. In many ways, the elderly women who try to maintain their land by planting seeds in the empty lot next to the newly constructed road and the director’s camera that conveys all this in support of their discreet struggle are similar.
