Director Statement

The documentary [The longest grave in the world] is atrocious part of modern history, Either we didn't know or didn't want to know. I wanted to face the tragedy of that era where even the truth had been put down although the greatest number of civilians were sacrificed during the Korean War of 1950. Some may ask 'why would you bring up an event that's already long passed?' However, they may think to differ if they face the families of the victims who have lived amongst us stamped with scarlet letters and the live that were taken without justifiable reasons nor proper procedures. As history repeats itself, this too is part of our history.
