1987: When The Day Comes – 2017 (129 min.) Directed by Joon-Hwan Jang (Korea)
The mass mobilization of millions of Korean workers and people to remove the reactionary corrupt government of Park Geun-hye last year was a victory for not just the Korean people but also people throughout the world. The Korean Confederation of Union (KCTU) played a critical role in helping to support and build this movement.
This dramatic film tells the story of the mass June democracy movement in 1987, when students began to protest the military government, and student activist Park Jong-chul was murdered by the police followed by a cover-up. The mobilization of the people in Korea eventually removed the military government. As there is a growing threat of dictatorship and mass repression in the United States, this film provides a powerful story of how people can organize and defend themselves.
This film has been nominated for and won many awards. See
