  Director Regis Tremblay presents his film, "The Ghosts of Jeju:

"A shocking documentary about the struggle of the people of Jeju Island, 
S. Korea. 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.

Using previously secret and classified photos, film and documents, this 
will be the first English-language documentary about the struggle of the 
brave people of Gangjeong Village who are opposing the military advance 
of the United States, just as their parents and relatives did in 1947. 
As then, they are being arrested, jailed, fined, and hospitalized for 
resisting the construction of a massive naval base that will accommodate 
America's "pivot to Asia," and will destroy their 400 year old village 
and their UNESCO protected environment."

"It was a smashing hit....people were crying and they were clapping at 
the end.....I handed out the DVD's strategically to key leaders in 
various Swedish cities, and from Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany, 
Japan and Mexico.....people passed the hat to send money to the village 
but I insisted they keep the money towards sending a representative from 
Sweden to the village ASAP......they loved the music, the story, and the 
resistance.....many people sent congrats to you....it's was a European 
opening night showing......5 stars. Add Russia to list of places I sent 
DVD home with....a man who works directly for Putin."
