New York City's Korea Society co-presents with The Museum of Moving Image Dooman River, part of the ‘Korean Cinema Now’ film series, on June 16. Dooman River won the 2010 Pusan International Film Festival NETPAC Award. Director Zhang Lu’s film explores the friendship between two boys, one a DPRK defector who has crossed the Dooman River and the other an ethnic Korean living in China. When more refugees arrive, their tranquil existence is shattered. Zhang Lu’s careful minimalism infuses emotion and touches the hearts of film-goers.
