Norgespremiere "Village vs. Empire" m/ samtale med regissøren

Vi har gleden av å invitere deg til norgespremiere for Mark Kaplans nyeste film, "Village vs. Empire" på Design og arkitektur Norge (DOGA) - Hausmanns gate 16, Oslo - lørdag, 13. oktober 2018, kl 16:00-17:30. Etter filmfremvisningen vil det bli anledning til noen få spørsmål med regissøren. Regissør Mark Kaplan og Co-produsent (Nefise Özkal Lorentzen - Integral Film) vil være tilstede på premieren.

"Village vs. Empire" tar utgangspunkt på Jeju-øya (Sør-Korea), der landsbyborene i Gangjeong protesterer hver dag mot bygningen av en stor militærbase som kaster øya inn i et geo-politisk maktspill mellom USA, Kina og Sør-Korea: "Jeju Island, off the coast of South Korea, is also known as Stone Island, Peace Island, and Women’s Island. It is home to no less than seven world heritage sites. But it is a paradise with dark side. Here on this tiny ecologically unique island, a village is confronting an empire. In Gangjeong village, on the southern tip the island, the U.S. and the South Korean navies have been building a huge naval base as part of a geopolitical strategy to ring-fence China. They are thus thrusting the islanders in the crosshairs of future conflict. Emmy-award winning South African director Mark J. Kaplan’s film, “Village vs. Empire”, sheds light on Jeju and the daily (over 4000 consecutive days) non-violent resistance efforts against the military base. The film lifts up stories moral imagination of the villagers who are resisting the base, and the seemingly immovable forces they face."

NOAM CHOMSKY har sagt om filmen: "Jeju Island was the scene of horrendous atrocities by the US-backed South Korea dictatorship 70 years ago. Its people recovered, and it is now internationally recognized as an island of world peace. It is also the site of many UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites. In recent years the US and South Korea have been desecrating the island with a huge naval base, significantly expanding military confrontation with China and causing immense damage to the lives of the islanders and to the environment. The villagers of the most affected region have been conducting a most impressive and courageous non-violent campaign to prevent these dangerous and destructive programs, facing severe repression and state violence, also seeking crucial international support. To learn more about this remarkable story, I urge you to watch this film."
