2011-10-14b House of Suh -- DC APA Film Festival
Obligation, choice, and loyalty are the values called into question in this compelling portrait of the Suhs, a Korean-American family whose quest for the American Dream would end in the tragic collapse of their household. Eloquently narrated by the family's youngest son Andrew, The House of Suh examines the complex dynamics of the Suh family, the tragedies that shaped their history, and the values embraced and rejected by Andrew and his sister Catherine. Their story culminates with them planning and executing a crime that shocked the Korean-American community and ignited a media frenzy.
Articulate and unabashed, Andrew narrates his captivating story and recounts the lives of those who have since left him: the older brother he never met, the hero/tormentor
father, the submissive mother, and the rival sibling turned surrogate mother. The House of Suh strips away the sensationalism that overshadowed the Suh case and examines the influence of cultural assimilation, gender inequity, traditional values, and justice raising questions of guilt, innocence, and the illusive gray area in between.
