by SoYoung Kim (Cinema Studies at Korean National University of Arts)

Kim traces the unknown history of Korean diaspora (Koryo people) and their migration around Eurasia from the Far East Russia, Siberia to Central Asia. Kim’s exile trilogy is the story about survivors and descendants of Koryo people, whose lives can trigger seminal questions on national and transnational construction of “Korean” identity in the world, and the meaning of geopolitical sense of sovereignty in the nomadic space of dispersion and dissemination.
