Meet the Makers: Crossings
July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
Although the Korean War was halted by an armistice in 1953, the warring parties never signed a peace treaty. Seventy years later, North Korea and the United States remain adversaries, millions remain tragically separated from their family members on opposite sides of a closed and heavily militarized border, and the threat of renewed fighting and even nuclear conflict looms. In CROSSINGS, international women peacemakers set out on a risky journey across the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), calling for an end to a war that has divided the Korean peninsula. The groundbreaking mission of Women Cross DMZ is framed with historic newsreels and punctuated with contemporary news coverage.
