The Ghosts of Jeju

2.00 pm

This film tells the story of the residents and workers of Gangjeong (pop. 1800). Their livelihoods are threatened by the Korean government’s decision to build a massive naval base to accommodate America’s military pivot to Asia. The villagers have been protesting the construction of the base 24 hours a day over five years. Not only are they fighting to save their village, but the entire ecosystem of the area which has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere preserve. (80mins)

Director Regis Tremblay ( 2013)

Brainwashing My Dad

3.30 pm

Jen Senko, a documentary filmmaker, looks at the rise of right-wing media through the lens of her WWII vet father who changed from a life-long, non-political Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic after his discovery of talk radio on a lengthened commute to work. In trying to understand how this happened, she uncovers some of the forces behind it: a plan under Nixon to create a media for the GOP; the Lewis Powell Memo, urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion. (90mins )

Director Jen Senko
