BEAST OF ME & FOREIGN SKY

Thursday, April 25

Beast of Me (18min) The filmmaker Soni Kum is a third generation Korean who grew up in a North Korean community in Japan. As she compares the skies of the United States and the sky she remembers in North Korea, through this universal mirror, she looks for answers in the fundamentals of life, even the lives of those who are not human.

Foreign Sky (70min) With found footage rarely seen outside the North Korean community, the filmmaker weaves her personal diaries, letters from relatives living in North Korea with poetic images of her own to create an alternate fictional narrative.

With discussion led by Brett de Bary, Professor of Asian Studies and Comparative Literature, Cornell University.
The films are part of the series “Intimate Ecologies: where forests, rivers and skies speak” sponsored by the Environmental Humanities Initiative, the Department of Asian Languages and Literatures and Cinema in the Cities.
