‘Crossings’ West Coast Premiere at Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival

In 2015 — the 70th anniversary of Korea’s tragic division by the United States and the former Soviet Union — 30 women peacemakers from around the world crossed the DMZ from North to South Korea, calling for peace on the Korean peninsula. Crossings, a new documentary film by Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem, follows these women leaders, including Women Cross DMZ co-founders Christine Ahn and Gloria Steinem and Nobel Peace Laureates Leymah Gbowee and Mairead Maguire, on their historic journey. Through their story, Crossings explores enduring questions about war’s legacies and the role women play in resolving the world’s most intractable conflicts.

Crossings will have its West Coast premiere at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on May 10 at 7:30pm at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum @ JANM (100 N Central Ave Los Angeles, CA).
