To Kill Alice (2017) 78 mins
A Rabbit-hole of Clashing Ideologies

Growing up in South Korea, Eunmi Shin had been exposed to intense anti-communist education. Despite this, Shin uses her US passport to travel to North Korea. The trip transforms her ideas of the country and inspires her to write a book to support reunification efforts. Shin’s book tour in South Korea unexpectedly jettisons her into the centre of a violent political maelstrom. She is accused of spreading propaganda and being a communist agitator. To Kill Alice is an unflinching look at the polarization of debate stymying peace prospects between the two Koreas.

Sang-Kyu Kim is an independent activist filmmaker based in Seoul, South Korea. In 2002, two South Korean youths were killed by a U.S. military armoured vehicle. No one was held accountable. For Kim, this incident highlighted the unequal relationship between South Korea and the United States. He quit a university level robotics program of study and picked up a camera. Since then, Kim has recorded the vibrant social justice movement in South Korea as a way to broadcast resistance. As a member of DOCUCOW, he has mostly worked in short format videos. Previous credits include: 'The Truth Shall Not Sink' (2014), about the Sewol ferry accident. 'To Kill Alice' is his first feature documentary film.

Presented by OCAD U's Culture Shifts with the support of the OCAD U's Art & Social Change, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the York Centre for Asian Research.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
