ACF 791: Director's forum with Brian Iglesias and special screening of Chosin at The Korea Society

A Discussion with Director Brian Iglesias
and a special screening of his film Chosin

When: Thursday, December 2, 2010 @ 6:30 PM
Where: The Korea Society
950 Third Avenue @ 57th Street, 8th Floor
(Entrance is on 57th Street, the south-west corner of the intersection)

Price: $10 Members and Film Students; $20 Guests

Film fans and students of military history can unite for an intimate discussion with director Brian Iglesias on the making of his award-winning independent documentary Chosin. Brian, a Marine and Iraq veteran, embarked on this production to honor those who sacrificed at the Battle of Chosin Reservior in the Korean War. Those who survived went on to facilitate the first evacuation under UN auspices, and over one million Koreans today descend from those who were assisted.

The director will discuss his cross-country journey to film those veterans still with us and the challenges of growing the production from humble origins to award-winning heights—including a sold-out New York premiere hosted by The Korea Society last June.His story is one that honors the Korean-U.S. friendship in a compelling and heartfelt way. The director’s forum is followed by a special screening of the film.
