Based on Patti Kim Gill’s life, and directed by Christine Swanson (also Korean and Black), BlacKorea takes an honest look at stereotypes resulting from two cultures colliding.
Screening followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with the cast and crew. Presented in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture; The Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality; Center for Identity + Inclusion; UChicagoGRAD Development & Diversity and Doc Films.
