This chapter provides historical background on the transition from the film activism of the 1980s and early 1990s to the new environment in which independent filmmakers produce and circulate their films. It presents the story of Kim Dong-won, the chairman of the Korean Independent Filmmakers Association, which parallels the transformation of the wider film activist community. The chapter then explores the process through which film activism opened up alternative ideologies and practices for film production and circulation in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Keywords:   film activism, authoritarian regime, minjung, political activism, Kim Dong-won, radicalization
