Syracuse University, Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs’ Korean Peninsula Affairs Center & East Asia Program present: Comrade Kim Goes Flying

A screening and discussion with the Director, Nick Bonner

Comrade Kim Yong Mi is a North Korean coal miner. Her dream of becoming a trapeze artist is crushed by the arrogant trapeze star Pak Jang Phil who believes miners belong underground and not in the air. A heartwarming story of a very determined young woman who transforms a supposedly impossible dream into reality, Comrade Kim Goes Flying is North Korea’s first film written, directed and produced as an international collaboration with European filmmakers. This intriguing depiction of ‘Comrade Kim’ individually pursuing her own dream and taking charge of her own future has drawn enthusiastic audiences both in North Korea and at several major international film festivals.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
