Special Film Screening: “Haemoo” (2014)
Thursday, December 18th @ 7 PM
3rd Floor Ari Hall Theatre KCCLA
Bong Joon-ho produced and co-wrote first-time director Shim Sung-bo’s thriller about a fishing-boat crew’s descent into red mist after a botched human-trafficking operation. The debut screening of “Hae Moo” (“sea fog” in Korean language) was at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival and it’s South Korea’s entry for “Best Foreign Language Film” at 87th Academy Awards. The film is based on the true story of 25 Korean-Chinese illegal immigrants who suffocated to death in the storage tank of a fishing vessel in 2001.
Synopsis: The 69-ton fishing vessel Jeonjinho fails to catch as much fish as its crew had hoped. To make more money, the crew decides to smuggle thirty illegal immigrants from China into Korea. But things don’t go according to plan when the vessel encounters heavy fog, rain and waves on its return journey, while also being chased by a ship from the South Korean Maritime Police. On orders from the captain, several crew members hide the illegal immigrants inside the fishing tank, where they are in danger of suffocating to death. Amid the chaos, the youngest crew member Dong-sik tries to protect a young female migrant whom he’d fallen in love with during the ordeal.

Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles (KCCLA)
Korea, where dynastic rule spanned nearly 2,000 years, is the home of one of Asia’s most important cultures. Today, Koreans in Los Angeles are a major part of this city’s multicultural social fabric. One of the best ways to learn about Korean culture is to visit the Center.
Whether you come on your own or with a group, we can assure you that you will find the Center’s programming to be a most educational and engrossing experience. You will leave with a better grasp of Korea, its history and culture, and you will have a good time!
Operated by the Korean Government’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism, our facility on Wilshire Blvd., has a museum with a collection of replicas of Korea’s most important artifacts, a gallery for fine art exhibition and a library with materials about Korea (in English and Korean), including a film and video section.
The Center holds special events where the public can view professional Korean artists in person. The Center also runs a series of free classes and workshops on various forms of Korean cultural expressions: music, dance, folk art and language. Most of these classes are free, but some have small fees for materials.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions, comments or suggestions.
