Blue Butterfly Effect captures the emergence of a grassroots resistance that emerged from a conservative district in South Korea in response to the impending deployment of THAAD – a Terminal High Altitude Missile Defense system. Reflecting upon the immediate and highly volatile tensions amongst North Korea, China and the US in the context of further militarization of the Korean Peninsula, this is an extremely timely and important film.
Cinevolution is proud to feature Blue Butterfly Effect as a pop-up DocuAsia event, which brings together academics, artists, and community organizers to witness, reflect and critically respond to socio-politcal currents on both sides of the Pacific. Screenings will take place in Richmond and in Vancouver, followed by a panel discussion. Director Emmanuel Moonchil Park will attend both discussions via Skype.
