The Ghosts of Jeju
Award winning documentary focusing on a unique peace movement in Gangjeong village, Jeju Island, South Korea.
The Ghosts of Jeju (Dir Regis Tremblay, 2013, US/South Korea, E, 80 mins) screens at Deli X, 156 Deptford High Street, SE8 3PQ on Mon 27 April, 6.15pm (doors open 6.00pm).
Award winning independent documentary focusing on a unique peace movement in Gangjeong village, Jeju Island, South Korea. Director Regis Tremblay uncovers the deliberately obscured history of US commanded massacres on Jeju after WW2, giving the historical background to the islanders’ resistance to militarisation of “the Island of World Peace”.
The film shows the struggle of rural villagers and peace activists to stop construction of a huge naval base, part of Obama’s “pivot to Asia”.
This screening is to raise awareness of the villagers’ ongoing fight. There will be a Skype Q & A with the activists afterwards.
