Capping off this is not a koreanobela: film trilogy, resident artist Soni Kum will screen her full-length feature film Foreign Skies. The filmmaker is a third generation Korean who grew up in a North Korean community in Japan. 152,900 North Korean refugees live in Japan. She attended these North Korean schools since she was a child. When she left her community, their memory and history do not correspond to the official record of history. Discrimination against the Koreans turn into actual physical violence, especially against women who wear Korean dress as a school uniform. With found footage rarely seen, the filmmaker weaves her personal diaries, letters from relatives living in North Korea with poetic images of her own to create an alternate narrative of history.
FALAFEL DANCE PARTY Wednesday calls again! Patience is the key to taking action and getting the best results. Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth. Bid goodbye to unresolved fantasies. Everything is real, including consciousness, there is nothing to worry about (Hakim Bey). Cut and paste, copy away. Failure is the only way to move ahead. And so after long months of stringent planning over intoxicated nights hanging around in conspiratorial air, we finally bring you our much anticipated dance nights. Like our Monthly Period poetry reading sessions, love will see us through. So come with your best emo, goth, disco love attire and dance the night away!
