In its fourth year, the Korean American Film Festival will screen features such as Make Yourself At Home by Soopum Sohn and from young director Jason Hoffmann, a Korean American adopted by Jewish parents in Greenwich Village, whose second documentary — Going Home — traces his journey to Seoul to meet his biological family.
