the house of suh signs with msnbc films

Some exciting news about the award-winning true crime documentary The House of Suh... The film, directed by Iris K. Shim, has picked up numerous awards -- most recently at the Hamptons International Film Festival, the San Diego Asian Film Festival and the Philadelphia Asian Film Festival -- and soon, audiences everywhere will be able to watch The House of Suh.

The filmmakers just announced that they've partnered with MSNBC Films to broadcast The House of Suh on national cable television in the Spring of 2011. This is great news, because it means they can share the film with a national audience -- and it definitely deserves to be seen. Here's the trailer:

Here's the synopsis:
Yoon Myung and Tai Sook Suh immigrated to America for a better life for their children, Andrew and Catherine. But their pursuit of happiness quickly became riddled with misfortune, culminating on September 25, 1993, when Andrew shot and killed his older sister's fiancé of eight years, Robert O'Dubaine, at Catherine's bidding.

Those closest to Andrew expressed shock and disbelief: how could a young man with a promising future allow himself to be convinced into committing murder? As the Suh's complex history unfolds, issues of cultural assimilation, traditional values and justice are examined, raising questions of guilt, innocence and the illusive gray area in between.
It's an amazing, riveting film. I can't recommend it enough. In the upcoming months, they'll be organizing university and community screening/discusisons of The House of Suh across the United States. If you'd like to host a screening, contact Gerry at gerry@thehouseofsuh.com. And for more information about the film, visit The House of Suh website here.
