While Walking in DMZ Despite Inter-Korean Relations at a Crossroad
Anticipation was running high at the historic Panmunjeom Declaration on April 27th of 2018, and people thought peace and unification on the Korean Peninsula were not far off. However, the U.S.-DPRK summit that grabbed the international attention ended with no solid outcomes, and the leaders of the two countries continue on the war of nerves, which pushes the inter-Korean relations into a deadlock. With the inter-Korean relations at a crossroad, we headed up again to DMZ. DMZ, a symbol of division and pains of the Korean Peninsula and of the renewed hope, is a 250km-long and 4km-wide land that cuts across the Korean Peninsula from east to west. This piece of land holds the past, the present, and the future of the Korean Peninsula.
'Wind of Peace at DMZ Now,' Arirang TV's special documentary, calmly captures stories of those who live the painful past and present as well as the value of DMZ and its future while taking a walk in DMZ and near the Civilian Control Line. People of various nationalities and ages whom we met in DMZ on an over a year-long filming process there all longed for peace on the Korean Peninsula. We documented the present of DMZ and met with many people and their stories there in the hope that their heartfelt wish would come true one day.
