Short Film About David Chung Featured in Paris Film Festival

Paris still

A cinematic, short documentary portrait of the development of Stamps Professor David Chung’s art installation Pyongyang will be featured at the 2016 Ethnografilm Festival in Paris, France (March 29 — April 3). The film, Pyongyang : Ritual Echoes of North Korea: The Process of an Artist, was produced by Sharad Patel.

During a rare escorted visit to North Korea, David was always greeted by the sight of the Pyongyang statue outside of his hotel window. The Pyongyang statue is a communist iconic monument in the capital of North Korea. Religions like Buddhism are actively discouraged in North Korea. In South Korea, the annual paper lantern lighting ceremony is practiced where the community puts together handmade lanterns and lights them.
