Black and white images of war alternate with colour sequences of the Torch-bearers: the recent and tragic past, and the redemption with the Games (the second edition held in Asia) from war to peace, with slow-motion takes of hundreds of doves flying over the stadium while the world stares at them. Several delegations participated in traditional dances, melting with the Korean ones. The film has no dead times with an engaging stream of events. The rhythm of the images can be defined ‘frenzied’.

Program Note

 An official documentary covering the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. It was completed with the directing of Im Kwon-taek, a narration by Do-ol Kim Yong-ok, and multiple Korean artists. The composition of the film is unique in the sense that it focuses on the process of failure before success. The narration written by Kim makes the documentary much more significant. His contemplative text expresses the pain of Korea’s modern history and the aspiration for world peace. The documentary depicts the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games as the epoch-making event in Korea’s modern history.
