Cinema Truth: And Thereafter: A Korean "War Bride" in an Alien Land (2004)

Thu, October 23, 2008 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM • Calhoun Hall (CAL), 100

And Thereafter: A Korean "War Bride" in an Alien Land (2004), Directed by Hosup Lee.

This multi-festival film is a portrayal of the fortitude of an immigrant "war bride" in America. Seventy-six-year-old Young-Ja Wike is one of the 10,000 Korean women who married American G.I.s. after the war. For them marriage was the only escape from the crushing poverty of post-war Korea.

"Grandma" lives in South Jersey with her uncaring, rather brutish husband in a kind

Our goal with this film series is to educate people about Asian/Asian American issues of domestic violence/survivors, show Asian/Asian American females in positive roles, gender issues/cultural issues regarding gender roles (i.e. emphasis on culture, religion, etc), sexual assault, and other forms of violence against women.

This event is free and open to the public.
