Language: Korean(English Subtitles)
Duration: 39 Mins
Director: Emmanuel Moonchil Park
Story: Having leaned overwhelmingly to the right in every election in history, Daegu is South Korea’s most conservative city. It’s perhaps a pleasant surprise, therefore, to find here the country’s second largest LGBTI+ culture festival. With Queer053, Emmanuel Moonchil Park’s documents the ten-year journey in which activists started from scratch, pushed back intervention from the authorities and intimidation from far-right Christian hate groups, and established what remains Daegu’s and South Korea’s most representative human rights event.
