He Xiangyu documents the return to his native city of Kuandian, located on the border between China and North Korea. Through interviews with veterans of the Korean-American War as well as with defectors from North Korea, he paints a dark, yet moving portrait of the place he comes from, contrasting with its picturesque landscapes. The artist thus offers a brief yet impressive glimpse into a world that, once seen, does not cease to intrigue.
Screening followed by a Q&A with He Xiangyu and Maxa Zoller.
