This year marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice, which temporarily halted the fighting, yet failed to officially end the Korean War. We will show two documentary films on the impact of the unending Korean War and discuss it with the filmmakers. "Memory of Forgotten War" and "The Woman, The Orphan and The Tiger".
Memory of Forgotten War introduces audiences to the lived experience and legacies of the Korean War, as four Korean American war survivors share deeply personal accounts of events preceding, during, and following the fighting.

The Woman, The Orphan, and The Tiger follows a group ofinternational adoptees and other women of the Korean Diaspora in their 20s and 30s. It explores the ways in which trauma is passed on from previous generations to the present through a sense of being haunted.
