Korean Cinema with Hyangjin Lee 2023

The 2nd Korean Cinema with Hyangjin Lee explores transboundary narratives of women portraying family separation and displacement in division films. Division film is a unique genre of Korean cinema identifying the historical and political complexities of storytelling. The end of World War II concluded 35 years of Japanese forced occupation in 1945 and turned Korea into a testing ground of Cold War ideology and political power. Since then, not only have military and ideological conflicts between the two Koreas deepened but also the suffering of people confined by their respective borders has never ended: they continue to this day. Following the 1st Korean Cinema with Hyangjin Lee which introduced enhanced international collaboration of North Korean films and examined their unique historicity, this year’s film screening and talk sessions aim to form trans-border solidarity and cultural empathy of global audiences of Korean cinema. Each film screening will be followed by a post-screening talk with the director of the film.
