Missed your opportunity to see THE HOUSE OF SUH at SFIAAFF29? You’re in luck! MSNBC will be airing the riveting award-winning documentary about a young man with a bright future, an engagement gone wrong, and a murder with no simple explanations.
Iris Shim / USA / 2010 / 90 min
Yoon Myung and Tai Sook Suh immigrated to America for a better life for their children, Andrew and Catherine. But their pursuit of happiness quickly became riddled with misfortune, culminating on September 25, 1993, when Andrew shot and killed his older sister’s fiancé of eight years, Robert O’Dubaine, at Catherine’s bidding.
Those closest to Andrew expressed shock and disbelief: how could a young man with a promising future allow himself to be convinced into committing murder? As the Suh’s complex history unfolds, issues of cultural assimilation, traditional values and justice are examined, raising questions of guilt, innocence and the illusive gray area in between.
