Korea: The Never-Ending War

Editing this film directed by John Maggio really illuminated for me how we got to the current tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, starting at the VERY beginning when the U.S. and Soviets carved up Korea at the end of WWII without the slightest input from Koreans.

The film takes a very human approach to the history by centering testimonies from survivors of the conflict, from a victim of an American war crime, to a woman separated from her immediate family by the DMZ for the past 70 years, to a high-ranking North Korean defector.
