The House of Suh (DVD)
One of Chicago's most famous murder cases surrounded sister and brother Catherine and Andrew Suh, first-generation Korean Americans, who conspired against, shot and killed Catherine's former boyfriend. Over a decade later, director Iris Shim revisits the case and opens a Pandora's box of family secrets that reveals the murder to be anything but black and white. What emerges in THE HOUSE OF SUH is a riveting and tragic portrait of a troubled family, which sheds light on the psychological complexity of cultural assimilation.
Premiering at the 2010 Hot Docs Film Festival, THE HOUSE OF SUH went on to win several awards, including: the Investigation Discovery Award for Excellence in Journalism, 2010 Hamptons International Film Festival; Best Documentary, 2010 Philadelphia Asian Film Festival; and the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 San Diego Asian American Film Festival.
