In Kuro, a Seoul industrial suburb, a young woman distributes tracts outside a factory. Denounced by her superiors, she is fired by the management. The workers live as a community in the factory: this is the place where they work, sleep in the dormitories and celebrate the important moments of their lives. One day, they are requested to do more work and above all faster. The workers attempt to protest and even dare create a union, but all their efforts fail, nipped in the bud by the foremen, the management’ s real henchmen. The women workers can only survive with medication; there are countless accents or sui cides. It is a student who managed to be employed as a worker who launches the strike. The army is at the doors of the factory…
Kuro Arirang is a political and social film denouncing the worker’s exploitation by the work and management. The solution to be freed from this oppression is the strike. This is one of the militant films from Changsam Kotmae collective. Great actor Choi Min-sik plays his first role in the film.
