Bamseom Pirates Seoul Inferno
The Bamseom Pirates from Korea make music appropriate to our sick society: a hundred songs in ten minutes, that kind of thing. This at times noisy, but also sparkling, activist and often humorous documentary reports on the resistance offered by these punk musicians to hypocritical, conservative money-grabbers and their often violent hold on society.
In his debut Non-fiction Diary, filmmaker Jung expanded an infamous real-life murder from the 1990s into an analysis of stumbling faith in progress in Korea. His second film starts as a noisy musical portrait, growing into a statement on youthful resistance against the capitalist powers that be.
