In Crossings, a group of women peacemakers — including two Nobel laureates and Gloria Steinem— cross the demilitarized zone (DMZ) from North to South Korea, calling for an end to a 72-year war that has divided the Korean peninsula. The challenges the women face, the obstacles they overcome, and the solidarity and trust they build as they forge a path to peace with their Korean sisters is an inspiring story of bridge building and collective action.
Screening followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem and peace activists.
Organized by University of Pennsylvania Government and Politics Association in collaboration with Korea Peace Now!
