  • Review

    Legacy of Memories is a documentary about two people who were part of the Korean War: Korean man named You Yongbok and a British man named Meirion Davies. Growing up in a tough childhood, You Yongbok could not afford to attend school and became a newspaper boy and later drafted to serve the People’s Army. Meirion Davies was born in a poor family and started working at a very young age. He received his draft notice at age sixteen and was sent to Korea. Just like the rest of men, Meirion Davies was sent to the war zone without understanding why he was fighting. Legacy of the Memories portrays how lives are being destroyed by this war that is resulted by forms of politics and ideologies. The film shows protagonists being devitalized yet not giving up on life. This is a unique documentary that exchanges the actual interviews and photographs. [KIM Youngjin]
