EXBERLINER & Asia Film Berlin present:

EXBlicks x Saturday Asia

Waiting for Spectres (OmeU)

Saturday, March 30th, 8:30 pm
in presence of director Kwon Eunbi

EXBerliner and Asia Film Berlin team up to present Korean director Kwon Eunbi’s exploration of North Koreans in Berlin (and whether they are actually here — or merely “spectres”).

SK 2017, 32 min, directed by Eunbi Kwon

“A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism.”

Intriguing rumours can be heard in Berlin, the city once symbolised the Cold War. The rumours range from the stories of people who saw North Koreans in a subway, at a Korean grocery store, in a park, to the stories of people who knows a German having a North Korean friend and of a foreigner in Berlin who met a North Korean and ended up being followed by Asian men afterwards.

These rumours are carried around Berlin as a secret and forbidden statement resembling a scary yet exciting comment like “I saw a ghost last night.” Artist Eunbi Kwon is from South Korea, the only divided country in the world where the Cold War still persists. She leaves for Berlin after hearing the rumour that one can meet North Koreans there. She has a dream: just having a cup of coffee with North Koreans regardless of one’s political beliefs.

Among countless nationalities living in Berlin, the South Korean national is solely banned to meet North Koreans due to the National Security Law of South Korea. This law applies worldwide. “Waiting for Spectres” follows her journey to pursue her dream. Can she realize her dream?

Kwon Eunbi
Born in 1982 in Seoul, she lives in Berlin. An artist on the street contemplating the history of the city. She has performed public and participatory art since 2006 in Korea. Triggered by the importance of the role of art in society, she deals with various issues from capital, politics, society, to nation state. Most of her works are participatory and collaborative projects with the local residents and the audience. She applies various methodologies to analyze social issues critically through art. Major projects include installation art in a public space and temporary installation art by using a variety of mediums. She works in Berlin and writes articles for Korean media.
