Film Screening:

"Heart of Snow, Heart of Blood"
(KIM Soyoung, 2014, 100 min, South Korea, in Russian, Koryo, and Korean w/ English subtitles, Color, Digital)

Migration and mobility often involve the most unusual suspects, as one can see in the documentary films of Kim Soyoung. Her documentary "Heart of Snow, Heart of Blood" tells of the tragic deportations of Soviet ethnic Koreans to Central Asia under Stalin in 1937, their resilience under the harshest of conditions, and their lives today in a world shaped by migration, repatriation, and the desire to simply stay put. In its striking mix of Russian, Koryo and Korean, the film shows the fragile cosmopolitanism of those always branded as second-class citizens - one of the central subjects of the ongoing Open City Project, of which the film is a part.
