CrossingsDirected by Deann Borshay Liem
Award-winning documentarian, Deann Borshay Liem (GEOGRAPHIES OF KINSHIP), documents Women Cross DMZ’s historic mission to cross the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to call an end to the unresolved 70-year war. Their story is punctuated by newsreels and historic accounts of the treacherous roller-coaster ride of US-North Korean relations. The women peacemakers, including renowned activists Christine Ahn and Gloria Steinem, tackle political hurdles, bureaucracy and widespread controversy with a fierce rigor to forge a path towards solidarity and peace. This is for all the activists and organizers building movements in seemingly impossible conditions but also everyday folks who are inspired to make a monumental change despite the odds.
Filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem, producer Sarah S. Kim, and activist Christine Ahn expected to attend for a post-screening Q&A
