TEDxSeoul - Soohwan Goo - A Life of love

Goo Soo Hwan, 'Don't Cry for Me Sudan' Producer Goo Soo Hwan is an eminent TV producer and director at KBS, dedicated to investigative journalism. As the director for '60 minutes', he strived to raise awareness against the social injustices in today's society. His love for humanity also led him to cover many war-torn regions including Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Chechen, East Timor and Kosovo. His most recent work, 'Don't Cry for Me Sudan,' traces the life of Late Catholic Father Tae-Seok Lee who passed away at the age of 48, as a father, doctor, teacher, conductor, and architect to Tonj, a small village in Southern Sudan. The documentary film is receiving wide acclaim for bringing to screen a beautiful story that wets the eyes of the critics and the public. The film is trying to give an honest view on reason and meaning on what drew Father Lee to Tonj, a remote place that many people would be hesitant to visit, let alone staying there for 8 years like Father Lee did until he died of colon cancer this January. Soo Hwan not only interviewed his mother, relatives, and friends, all of whom shed tears after tears in front of the camera, but also flew to Tonj to actually follow Father Lee's footsteps. The film is an honest mirror of Father Lee's life, which warmly reflects on his dreams and his love for humanity. The film is currently being shown in cinemas abroad including Los Angeles. Soo Whan is also preparing to submit the film to Berlin Film Festival.
