Film Co-Director, Ramsay Liem will be present.
The Korean War ended with the signing of the Armistice in 1953, but the war did not really end, as no peace treaty was ever signed. Six decades have now passed but the war continues, embodied in the hostile relations between the United States and North Korea and in the legacy of trauma and family separation that continues for millions of Koreans and Korean Americans. See this new film and hear from Prof. Ramsay Liem, Prof. Jae Jung Suh, an expert on U.S.-North Korean issues and Sukjong Hong, a writer/artist who works on Korean peninsular issues. Presented by the Colin L. Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, the Documentary Forum@CCNY, MCA, Third World Newsreel, Asian Studies Program, International Relations Program, the Student's Association for International Studies (SAIS) and the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Student Association at CCNY.
