“At the centre of Soyoung Kim’s 2017 documentary “Goodbye My Love, North Korea (Gutbai mai leobeu NK)” is a group of eight North Korean filmmakers who sought political asylum in the Soviet Union in 1958. Initially sent to study at the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (or VGIK) in 1952, the eight were critical of the Kim Il-sung regime and its consolidation of power following the 1956 August Faction Incident. Calling themselves the 8-Jin (paljin) or “Genuine 8,” the eight christened themselves both as individuals (with new surnames) and as a group with the Chinese character for truth, 眞. Truth, and especially filmic truth, is just one of “Goodbye My Love’s” many concerns, as it deploys historical found footage of the Soviet Union and North Korea, film clips, dramatic reenactments, readings of poetry and prose, as well as folk songs in relaying the account of the 8-Jin. But the bulk of the work falls on the shoulders of the two surviving members, cinematographer Kim Jong-hun (Kim Jin) and director Choi Kuk-in (Choi Jin), who are joined by Zinida Ivanova, widow to writer Han Dae-yong (Han Jin). Interviews with the three present an overview of the group’s experience from the Korean War to their initial study abroad, their public criticism of Kim Il-sung, to exile and beyond.” –SE-YOUNG KIM, The University of British Columbia Film Reviews, Northeast Asia
