Join us for a film screening and panels on Deann Borshay Liem’s “Crossings” (2021), which documents the peace activism of “Women Cross DMZ,” a group of international women peacemakers who walked across the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to forge a path toward peace and reconciliation. The film screening will be accompanied by a scholar panel and a Q&A panel with the filmmaker and featured activist. International feminist peace organizing efforts is a form of energy generated by the longer efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula. The event will address how the organizing efforts intersect with the artistic and scholarly energies surrounding Women Cross DMZ and Korean American organizers who have worked hard to sustain a lively and engaged community of diasporic and international feminist peace activists.
