Trough the story and paintings of second generation Korean-Russian artist Nikolai SHIN (SHIN Soon-nam), the forgotten tragedy of Stalin’s 1937 forced migration policy comes alive. Korean-Russians were forced to board relocation trains to unknown destinations, sometimes for more than 20 days without food or lavatories. A documentary of grand scale, shot on 35mm by a first-time Korean female filmmaker barely 30 years old, this is truly a rare jewel.
