In 1945 Korea once more became an independent nation. The first film made after Japan’s defeat charts the life-and-death battle that Korean freedom fighters faced. Directed by Choi In-gyu, who had previously made colonial propaganda films, Hurrah! For Freedom shows the complex personal and artistic decisions people had to make under colonial occupation. Plus two nine-minute newsreels: Joseon News No. 11. 조선시보 제11보 and Japanese Chronicles 일본실록.
