Event Details

You're invited to a film screening and forum exploring the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice on Thursday, November 21 at City College of New York.

The Korean War ended with the signing of the Armistice in 1953—but the war did not really end, as no peace treaty was ever signed.  Six decades have now passed but the war continues, embodied in the hostile relations between the United States and North Korea and in the legacy of trauma and family separation that continues for millions of Koreans and Korean Americans.

The Colin L. Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership will host a program on November 21 that presents the new documentary Memory of Forgotten War from acclaimed filmmakers Deann Borshay Liem and Ramsay Liem, a professor emeritus of psychology at Boston College. After the film, there will be a panel discussion with Professor Ramsay Liem, Professor Jae Jung Suh, Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Sukjong Hong, a writer and fellow at the Korea Policy Institute, who will discuss the social, military and human costs of the unending Korean War

5:30 PM Reception, Shepard Hall, Room 558

6:30 PM Film screening, Shepard Hall, Room 291

7:30 PM Panel discussion and Q & A


Co-sponsored by the Media and Communication Arts department at CCNY, the Documentary Forum @CCNY, the International Studies Program, the Asian Studies Program, the Student's Association for International Studies (SAIS), the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Student Association at CCNY and Third World Newsreel. 

This event is part of the Colin L. Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership's public programming tied together under the theme of forgiveness, examined through the lenses of Powell School departments and programs. The previous event in this series looked at the issue of forgiveness from the perspective of economics with a breakfast focused on sovereign debt forgiveness.
