The House of Suh

Showing at the Hot Docs FIlm Festival: The House of Suh, directed by Iris K. Shim

Synopsis from the Hot Docs website:

Robert Dubaine is ambushed in the garage of his Chicago home. His fiancĂ©e and her brother are arrested for his first-degree murder. She flees to Hawaii while the brother admits to the crime. Catherine and Andrew Suh are sentenced to 100 years in prison. The media sensationalizes their story, with a made-for-TV movie and an appearance on America’s Most Wanted. The House of Suh paints Andrew as a boy who valued loyalty to his family, which would turn out to be his greatest downfall. He’s the good son, favoured by his father, protective of his mother. When he’s adopted by his sister, he becomes a star athlete and school president. He’s in his first year of college on a full scholarship when he commits the cold-blooded murder. Catherine is the key to the mystery of Andrew’s undoing. - Dannielle Dyson.

  1. At the End of this film at the Toronto Doc fest the director admitted that this film was the Idea of Andrew the killer that got locked up in Jail. So she made this film so that Andrew can show his one sided view to try and get out of jail.
