One Day on the Road

Directed by Hwang, Yun, 2008
29 April 2011

Roads criss-cross our landscapes, making it convenient for human beings to get quickly from one place to another. However, countless tragedies occur on roads. Adopting an environmentalist point of view, this film is South Korea’s first in-depth study of the phenomenon of ‘road rage’ and ‘road kill’ where drivers who race along the roads, mindlessly destroy life and natural habitats. Do human beings ever ask for permission while destroying the Earth and while marginalizing the weak and threatening their very existence? Where will we as a race get to after racing ahead on these familiar structures that we call roads? This film pointedly and often poignantly asks these questions.
