Register your Korean Divided Families with the National Coalition on Divided Families

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Harvard screening last night! We got a lot of questions about you can get more involved. One way is to spread the word to divided family members about registering on the Divided-USA site to give Senator Mark Kirk and other congressmen more data points to push for this issue. Please click here:

Again, thank you for your ongoing support, and please spread the word about registration!

Please support my kickstarter campaign: Divided Families Film Project!


The Divided Families Film team and I launched our Kickstarter campaign as our final fundraising push to raise $20,000 to finish our film project. Here is the link to our campaign:Divided Families Film Kickstarter campaign 

You can learn more about our project below:

Divided Families Film Website

Divided Families Film Facebook Page

We will run our campaign from February 26 until March 26, and the way Kickstarter works is, if we hit our $20,000 goal, then great — we get to use all the dollars towards our project. If we receive pledges that add up to anything less than our $20,000 goal, we don’t get to keep anything. We need all of your support (and your donations will be tax deductible)!

Help us reach our goal and finish the film soon!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

DFF’s trip to Seoul in June 2012

The ASAN Institute of Policies Studies invited the Divided Families Film Project team to present our documentary at their 2012 ASAN North Korea Week conference.  So, Eugene Chung, the co-executive director, and I went to Seoul to screen our latest version to a Korean audience about the familiar and heartbreaking story of separated Korean families. We were among highly accomplished, widely experienced, and renowned professors, former North Korean elite members, and musicians. The experience was truly awe-inspiring. Check out a few photos from our presentation and Q & A afterwards.

We were invited to do a live TV interview for Arirang. Though short, check it out here!

KBS World also took interest and invited us to share a bit more about the film project. Eugene had to head back to the States early, so I took the interview solo. Thanks Yoori Kim for the interview!  KBS WORLD: Documentary Producer Jieun Baek on Divided Korean American Families
