  • Mcdonald interweaves two conflicting representations of Korea and its Memorial Day activities. One is an oral journalistic interpretation of Korean society, with the false optimism of a travelogue and an undercurrent of propaganda. The other is an oral and visual recounting of the torture of theology student Choon-sop after his arrest in 1980 for violating martial law decrees. The tape's simplicity underscores the complex manipulation of media by ruling ideologies.
