Review

Jeju Island, March 15, 2022. “Spring Wind Pilgrimage” hits the road with Father Moon Jeong-hyeon, also known as “the priest on the road”. Departing from the Jeju Naval Base and heading towards the land, their destination is battlefields across the country: places with people who oppose war, stop environmental degradation, cry for abolition of discrimination, stand in solidarity with refugees, and remember the tragedy. The omnibus Spring Wind Project – We are here is the result of media activists joining the 40-day journey. The 18 films are categorized into five themes: The Age of Climate Crisis, Stolen Labor, Present and Connect, Memory Struggle, and Peace Exercise. All the films depict both the bare face of the Korean society and determination for a new world. The 21 media activists who participated under the name of “Spring Wind: on-site media project that connects different worlds” are also filmmakers who have left meaningful footprints on the Korean documentary field. In other words, the site of Spring Wind Pilgrimage is in fact a documentary site.
