Documentary screening on legacies of the Korean War
“Memory Works: Documenting Legacies of a ‘Forgotten War,” a documentary film on legacies of the Korean War, will be screened at 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016 in the Crosby Seminar Room, 240 Northrop at the University of Minnesota. The event is free and open to the public.
Filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem screens three short films that touch on the legacies of the Korean War from the perspective of a divided family, a Korean adoptee, and women activists who cross the DMZ to promote peace. These stories challenge the notion that the Korean War is ‘forgotten’ and that war ends and peace begins when the guns are silenced.
