PAJU - The Inner Division

PAJU - Die innere teilung

  • Susanne Mi-Son Quester


The film takes us on a journey to Paju, a town on the border between North and South Korea. There we follow the German-Korean filmmaker, whose family once fled from North Korea to the South, as she encounters the inhabitants of Paju and accompanies them in their daily lives – along and with the border: These include: a tour guide, who daily escorts foreign tourists to the border; the manager of a huge cemetery for North Korean refugees, whose own family roots lie in North Korea; a North Korean who only recently fled to the South, leaving behind her family in North Korea; and a young editor who publishes books on North Korea, although the topic is of little personal inter- est to him. In its encounters with these and other residents, the film renders a perceptive portrait of a country whose division has left a deep imprint in the lives of its inhabitants.
