MEMORY OF FORGOTTEN WAR conveys the human costs of military conflict through deeply personal accounts of the Korean War (1950-1953) by four Korean-American survivors. Their stories take audiences through the trajectory of the war, from extensive bombing campaigns, to day-to-day struggle for survival, and separation from family members across the DMZ. Decades later, each person reunites with relatives in North Korea, conveying beyond words the meaning of family loss. These stories belie the notion that war ends when the guns are silenced and foreshadow the future of countless others displaced by ongoing military conflict today.
In CROSSINGS, a determined group of internationally renowned women peacemakers will attempt the impossible: crossing the demilitarized zone (DMZ) from North to South Korea, calling for peace on the Korean peninsula. The film will follow key women leaders from twelve countries, including two Nobel peace laureates, on this historic journey as they face political and social obstacles, mixed public opinion, fear, and red-baiting. Through their journey, Crossings will tell a story of global resonance about a divided nation and explore enduring questions about war’s legacies and the role women play in resolving the world’s most intractable conflicts.
