Student Showcase: Film Screening of My Family’s Country

Tuesday, March 27 2018 5:30PM

Wisconsin Room (2nd floor of UWM Student Union)

We invite you all to the second of our two film screenings this semester translated by UWM Japanese majors. This one is titled Kazoku no kuni (My Family’s Country), and is about the Zaininichi (resident Koreans) in Japan who are affiliated with North Korea. It is a wonderful film, and it pairs with our recent Fukushima film as a thoughtful look at what it means to adopt a homeland, and what it means to lose a homeland.

Not commercially available in the US, and having only very limited screenings on the international film circuit, this film will be screened with English subtitles produced by Japanese majors in the Fall Semester course Japan 361: Translating Japanese Media.

Many thanks to the Japanese Culture Association for help in putting this on–you guys are heroes.
