Understanding the Korean War Through the Lens of FilmVIEW EVENT DETAILS
This year, June 25th will mark the 72nd anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War. Often labeled as the forgotten war, the battle on the peninsular was a vast human tragedy that defined and shaped the relationship between Korea and the West. While the Korean War may be distant and abstract to those outside Korea, there have been many movies worldwide depicting the conflict in popular culture. These films often understand and remember the war from different perspectives, as with all historical interpretations. Against this backdrop, Asia Society Korea panelists will analyze various Korean war movies made from around the world and discuss how they portray the war from various viewpoints.
