Screening of "Tour of Duty"
Screening of "Tour of Duty" & Conversation with Film Directors
Center for Creative Photography and the University of Arizona Center for East Asian Studies proudly present the award-winning film "Tour of Duty" (2012) screening on November 30th in the CCP auditorium. Afterward, stay for a riveting Q&A with directors Kim Dongryung and Park Kyoungtae.
"Tour of Duty" centers on the life stories of the three former military sex workers who use their cameras to recollect their memories in the military camp towns in post-colonial South Korea. From 1945-1948, the U.S. and the Soviet Union occupied the country after their independence from Japan, and North and South Korea were separated. The Korean War broke out two years later, intensifying Cold War tensions and solidifying the U.S. defense line against potential communist invasion for the next seven decades, up to the present day.
