Okhwan's Mission Impossible

MA15+ Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Okhwan's Mission Impossible at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

This 2016 documentary tells the Don Quijote-like story of Okhwan Yoon, a law graduate and a successful businessman, a dreamer who gave up his career and set off on a bike trip around the world with one simple purpose - to draw attention to the absurd division of his homeland into South and North Korea.

His entire life in one small backpack, Okhwan spent more than 10 years on his bicycle, crossed 192 countries and clocked 10,000 kilometres.

Director Marek Mackovic project became famous even before the documentary was finished. The shots he made with Okhwan in July 2010 in Nepal were used by directors Kevin Macdonald (awarded with an Oscar) and Loressa Clisby in their project Life in a Day, streamed during the prestigious 2011 Sundance festival.
