"On May 18, 1980, the city of Gwangju rose up against the oppressive military regime of dictator Chun Doo Hwan. Known as the Gwangju Uprising, this democracy movement was brutally suppressed by the government, and is now remembered as one of the most important events of modern Korean history. Directed by Kim Tae Il, the 2010 documentary No name stars looks back on the Gwangju democracy movement upon its 30th anniversary. The film brings together personal and collective memories of the Gwangju movement through interviews with the normal everyday people who stepped forth in those fateful days that would come to define and transform modern Korea. The documentary also touches on the conflicts over the Gwangju legacy today, as displayed during the fight over the preservation of the Gwangju provincial building"--YesAsia.
