Join us for the screening of acclaimed Korean film, 탄생 (A Birth; 151 mins) as part of a joint Korean Studies Conference hosted by the Korean Studies Association of Australasia (KSAA) and the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS) from 4 to 6 December 2023, on ANU campus in Canberra, Australia.
Written and directed by Heung-sik Park, the movie deals in depth with the patience and courage of Kim Dae Gun, a young man who had to create his own hope, his willingness to throw his body, and his love for God and man that he showed throughout his life. He was baptised and also selected to study theology by a French priest. To become the first Korean born priest, he travelled to Macau with two of his companion priests to study there (IMDb, 2022).
There are limited seats for this event, so please register ASAP so as not to miss out.
