KIM-GUN begins with a black-and-white photo taken in May 1980, at Geumnamro, Gwangju, South Korea. 35 years later, the identity of the young man has become a source of controversy: some claim he is “Gwangsu,” one of the North Korean special agents whose mission was to instigate anti-government violence, while others remember him as “Kim-gun,” a ragpicker who lived under a bridge over the Gwangjucheon Stream.
