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

The Center for Asian American Studies and SAHELI present a screening of "And Thereafter: A Korean 'War Bride' in an Alien Land," a portrayal of the fortitude of an immigrant "war bride" in America. The film tells the story of 76-year-old Young-Ja Wike, one of the 10,000 Korean women who married American G.I.s. after the war. Her marriage was the only escape from the crushing poverty of post-war Korea.

SAHELI (support, advocate, heal, empower, listen, inform) is a nonprofit that provides assistance to Asian families dealing with domestic violence and abuse. The screening is free and open to the public.
