2008/11/06 Source

KOFIC USA will be holding a fundraising dinner and screening of "Crossing" this coming Friday, November 14, 6:30pm at Wilshire Grand Hotel(930 Wilshire Blvd. LA, CA 90017).

The purpose of this fundraiser and dinner event is to promote "Crossing" for the 78th Academy Awards nomination in Best Foreign Language Film category. This event will take place with much support from those who love Korean cinema.

"Crossing" is a story of a North Korean family of defectors through whom the film portrays the tragedy of separation so that it could reunite as one under better conditions of living. Helmed by Kim Tae-gyoon and starring Cha In-pyo, "Crossing" received wide praise for its outstanding performance. Korean films that are vying for a nom in the same category include "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", "Sunny", "The Chaser", and "Forever the Moment". These films all contain artistic merits and subject of humanism that Hollywood promotes, and all received accolades in their own right.

First part of this fundraiser will be consist of dinner, introduction to the film and a special session with the star Cha In-pyo, followed by the screening of the film. Entire proceeds from this event will be used to promote "Crossing" for Academy Awards in its entirety.

The event will be attended by government officials of Los Angeles, enterprisers, directors JUNG Chang-hwa and KANG Jae-kyu, and second generation Korean-American actors James Kyson Lee('Heroes'), Moon Bloodgood() and John Cho().
