May 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
“Welcome to Dongmakgol” (directed by Kwang-hyun park)
Dongmakgol is a village tucked away on a remote mountain and untouched by the ongoing Korean War. Fate brings three fighting forces together in Dongmakgol: a U.S. fighter pilot whose plane crashed in the mountains, three retreating North Korean soldiers and two South Korean soldiers who are lost. When the North and South Korean soldiers first face off in Dongmakgol they raise their arms, but the charming villagers soon have the soldiers agreeing to a temporary truce. After a grenade destroys the food storage, the soldiers decide to stay and help the local farmers. Meanwhile, U.S. commanders believe there is a major North Korean military presence in the area where their plane went missing and plan a devastating air strike. In order to spare the village from complete destruction, the soldiers decide to work together to divert the attack, possibly placing themselves directly in harm’s way.
