Join us for a private screening of Divided Families, a recently completed documentary about Korean Americans’ search for lost relatives in North Korea, 60 years after Korea became a divided nation. During the Korean War and its aftermath, hundreds and thousands of family members were separated in the chaos of the war, and then by the border that was drawn establishing North and South Korea. More than half a century later, there are an estimated 100,000 first generation Korean Americans with immediate family members in North Korea. This documentary is their urgent story, as time is running out for this generation to reunite with their family and loved ones.

Directors Jason Ahn, Eugene Chung, and producer Jieun Baek will be present to introduce and discuss the making of this documentary which involved dozens of production crew filming in three countries over four years.

 

(50 minutes, 2013)
Directed by Jason Ahn and Eugene Chung
Produced by Jieun Baek, Evangel Fung, and Jennifer Tsay
