Program Note

Empress Chung is the one and only feature-length animated film co-produced in North and South Korea. It is a modern remake of a famous Korean folk tale about a daughter who sacrifices herself to restore her blind father's eyesight. The animation was completed by Studio SEK in North Korea except for pre- and post-production, and released simultaneously in North and South Korea in 2005. It was directed by Nelson Shin who returned home after working as an animator in US for a long time. Known for its adorable characters and their natural movements, this Disneyesque adventure would be a perfect fit for anyone regardless of age and gender.
