JUNE 23: CO-PRESENTATION AT TORONTO KOREAN FILM FESTIVAL
JAYU will be co-presenting Adam Sjoberg's I Am Sun Mu at the 5th annual Toronto Korean Film Festival on Thursday, June 23rd at 5:00PM at Innis Town Hall.
Operating under a pseudonym which means "no boundaries", North Korean defector Sun Mu doesn't just paint about his troubled life in the world’s most reclusive and repressive state - he paints images of hope. Sun Mu's work is imbued with nuance and heartbreak, political pop art that inverts the propaganda work he used to paint for the North Korean regime. In July of 2014, Sun Mu is offered an historical, though potentially dangerous, opportunity: a solo exhibition in the capital of Asian art, China. As he prepares his show undercover, an unexpected twist of events puts Sun Mu and all of his friends and family in danger.
