Filmmaker Update: Min Sook Lee

Gemini-winning director Min Sook Lee’s newest documentary The Real Inglorious Bastards will have its broadcast premiere on the History Channel on November 12.  This film is based on two characters that Quentin Tarantino featured his Brad Pitt film InGlorious Bastards on.  

During World War II, the U.S. government’s newly formed Office of Strategic Services trained 10,000 men and launched over 1,000 undercover missions. This documentary recounts the thrilling story of the most successful of these missions—Operation Greenup—and the two young Jewish immigrants who parachuted one perilous winter night into the Austrian Alps, risking their lives to strike back at Nazi Germany.  Meet The Real Inglorious Bastards.

Reel Asian screened Lee’s Tiger Spirit in 2008, a feature length doc about a reunification road trip through the two Koreas.  Find out more about Lee’s newest doc here.
