Iris Shim’s documentary House of Suh refers to Andrew and his sister Catherine Suh, first generation Korean American siblings who were both convicted of planning and executing the murder of Catherine’s boyfriend Robert O’Dubaine in Chicago on September 25, 1993. The film uses interviews with Andrew (now serving a 100-year sentence in federal prison), other Suh family members, O’Dubaine’s brother Kevin Koran, and various lawyers from each side as the core analysis of the film. Her calculated layering of perspectives allows this seemingly open and closed case to grow more complex.
The film has gotten much critical acclaim and will be be screened on May 2nd @ 7:00PM at the CGV Cinemas. Although Iris will not be in attendance we are working on an interview with her to talk about the film!
