Check out the Newly Released Documentary Halmoni about an Undocumented Immigrant’s Experience Visiting his Grandmother in South Korea!



We are excited to help spread the word that Halmoni was just officially released online at for public view. The 21-minute documentary Halmoni poetically tells the story of a 24-year-old undocumented Korean, Ju Hong, who was able to visit his 90-year-old grandmother in South Korea through the Advanced Parole program. The film was an official selection at CAAMFest 2017, the Boston Asian American Film Festival 2016, and the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival 2016. The film was also featured by Fusion this week. “Having intimate moments being filmed was difficult to balance but it was a choice that I made to let the world know how this broken and complicated immigration system is affecting families,” Hong told Fusion in a telephone interview.’ We highly recommend checking it out! You can also follow Ju on Instagram and Twitter at @JuHong89
