New Release!
PEOPLE ARE THE SKY

We are excited to announce new release PEOPLE ARE THE SKY, by Dai Sil Kim-Gibson, the award-winning director of MOTHERLAND CUBA KOREA USA, who is the first Korean American filmmaker to receive official government permission to film inside the borders of North Korea. Kim-Gibson seamlessly weaves her life story in with the fractious history between North and South Korea, giving Americans a much better understanding of the roots of the conflict. The film is a contemplative exploration of the meaning of home and a compelling political and social profile of North Korea. PEOPLE ARE THE SKY is an up-close look at the contradictions and aspirations of a demonized nation.
