With only two Korean Americans elected to U.S. Congress since 1903, five Korean Americans run for U.S. Congress in 2020. CHOSEN offers a glimpse within the campaigns of these candidates with vastly diverse backgrounds and competing political views including David Kim, the only underdog with limited resources vying to be the first gay Korean American representative.

An award winning lawyer turned filmmaker, Joseph Juhn has a passion for telling diasporic narratives. His second feature documentary “CHOSEN” had its World Premiere at the Jeonju International Film Festival in May 2022. The complex dynamics of Korean American communities represented in the film will be further explored in our post-screening discussion with the filmmaker.
