The documentary Chosen, about five Korean American candidates who ran for Congress in 2020, will be screened at the Korea Society in New York City, on Thursday, November 2, at 7 p.m. EDT. The screening will be followed by a director talk and interview afterward.
The film by Joseph Juhn follows five Korean American candidates who have vastly diverse backgrounds and competing political views as they each navigate their run for the U.S. Congress.
The film focuses on David Kim, an underdog candidate with limited financial resources, who ran for a Congressional seat in one of the poorest districts of Los Angeles during the pandemic. Korean Quarterly interviewed Juhn about his film in 2022 (see this link).
Independent filmmaker/director Joseph Juhn will join the for an audience Q&A session after the film facilitated by Chelsie Alexandre of the Korea Society. This event is free, but a donation of $20 to the filmmaker is encouraged.
