PEOPLE ARE THE SKY

"[Kim-Gibson] is determined to bring the voices 
of the voiceless to the screen and people who are often overlooked. And so she has attempted through her
 films to humanize the world."
Mary Elizabeth Moore, Dean
Boston University School of Theology


PEOPLE ARE THE SKY

Dai Sil Kim-Gibson, the award-winning director of 
MOTHERLAND CUBA KOREA USA is the first Korean American filmmaker to receive official government permission to film inside the borders of North Korea. PEOPLE ARE THE SKY, Kim-Gibson's eighth and most personal film, documents her first pilgrimage in nearly 70 years to her place of birth. As she explores whether her hometown is still "home," Kim-Gibson seamlessly weaves her life story in with the fractious history of the division between North and South Korea, giving Americans a much better understanding of the roots of the conflict. With a mix of interviews and graceful, epic images, PEOPLE ARE THE SKY is both a contemplative exploration of the meaning of home and a compelling political and social profile of North Korea. This is a startling and unprecedented film, an up-close look at the contradictions and aspirations of a demonized nation.
