The Korea Society and Asian American International Film Festival co-present this politically profound film made by Japanese-Korean director, Yang Yong-hi.
Her father was a patriotic Korean living in Japan, sympathetic to North Korea. He sent his three Japanese-born sons to North Korea by the ‘Repatriation program’, believing in North Korea's promise of a paradise. This movie starts after 25 years when Sungho, one of the director's brothers, is finally allowed to return to Japan for three months to get medical treatments. This film intertwines agony of her, and her family and hurt one another based on ideology, nationality and ethnicity but realize within the boundaries of family anything can be overcome gracefully.
The director's previous films, Dear Pyongyang (2005) and Sona, the Other Myself (2009), were documentaries concerned with the same subject matter.
This screening will be followed by a director’s Q & A with the audience.
