Movie Details

Part of the People's Century series, Asia Rising documents how Japan and the two Koreas have developed since the end of World War II. Comparing and contrasting the technology-led economic boom of Japan with the ongoing political and military tensions between North and South Korea, this fine, informative film should make for valuable viewing for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
