Lee Kyung Hae| 54mins
Director: Tromben | Producer: Gimet
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: France
On September 10th, 2003, during the fifth ministerial of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Cancun, Lee Kyung Hae stabbed himself in the chest with a knife. His hope was to focus the worldâ€™s attention on the hidden misery of what the WTOâ€™s decisions really mean to millions of small farmers. Through interviews with people who have met Lee during his long years of fight - trade-unionists, militants and political leaders favorable to the opening market - we could trace the path of a man with strong values. We could also have a view of the context. Why Lee has decided to sacrifice himself?
