‘One Warm Spring Day’ chosen as opening film
‘One Warm Spring Day’ is the first feature-length documentary film of director Chung Su-eun. Its selection as the opening film is meaningful, as it was produced with the financial support the DMZ Docs Funding to Chung, who was picked as a promising young documentary director last year.
