Program Note
In 1973, Chol Soo Lee was arrested as a suspect in a murder case in San Francisco’s Chinatown and sentenced to life in prison. It was the result of false testimonies by white witnesses who had difficulty telling Asian faces apart and the neglect of the investigators. When a Korean-American journalist who became skeptical about the case writes an article that raises questions about the investigation, a large-scale protest ensues, calling for the release of the innocent young immigrant. Free Chol Soo Lee is a documentary that presents in detail the life of Chol Soo Lee, who became a symbol of the Asian Civil Rights Movement, through various archive footage and interviews. Shedding light on the impact of the relief efforts of numerous people on Chol Soo Lee and the shadow that a decade of imprisonment cast on his life, this film makes Lee’s life palpable. (HONG Eunmi)
