PEOPLE ARE THE SKY by Award-winner director  Dai Sil Kim-Gibson (MOTHERLAND),  seamlessly weaves her own personal story as a native born North Korean, with the fractious history of the North/South division and pinpoints the roots of North Korean's hatred of the United States, giving Americans a much better understanding of the conflict. A mix of interviews epic images and graceful musings,  PEOPLE ARE THE SKY  offers some of the best political and social history of the relations between North and South Korea, and also a contemplative exploration of the meaning of home with even a hint of humor.
