'The Ghosts of Jeju' Screening in Charlottesville


December 8, 2013

A free public screening of The Ghosts of Jeju was held Sunday night in Charlottesville.

The Ghosts of Jeju is a documentary that sheds light on the struggles faced by residents of Gangjeong Village on the South Korean island of Jeju.

"Set in the context of the American presence in Korea after World War II, the film reveals horrible atrocities at the hands of the U.S. Military Government of Korea," according to the film's website.

Filmmaker Regis Tremblay was also in town to discuss the documentary with the crowd.

"When people understand the history and what our government has done in Korea, they realize we've done this all over the world in many communities that we've displaced indigenous people and people begin to see this imperialism and endless war on terror is a terrible thing," said Tremblay.
