The Ghost of Jeju
Wins Best Feature Documentry
Chicago Peace On Earth Awards

Update from Filmmaker Regis Tremblay…
The 
Ghosts of Jeju won the best Feature Film  Documentary at the Chicago Peace on Earth Film Festival tonight!

Joyakgol, from Gangjeong Village has been with me. The village took up a collection for him to come to America when they heard the film was accepted for this festival. He brought his guitar and played tonight at the reception for the filmmakers… everyone was singing, clapping, dancing… it was amazing and overwhelming.The people of the festival and the filmmakers embraced both of us and thanked us. The other films were magnificent and so deserving…but the voices of Jeju are what was heard in Chicago this week.

Thank you all for your support all along the way…..

From Academy Award nominated Director Kirby Dick The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America’s most shameful and best-kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the US military.

The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem — today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The U.S. Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 22,800 violent sex crimes in the military in 2011.

Twenty percent of all active-duty female soldiers are sexually assaulted. Female soldiers aged 18 to 21 accounted for more than half of the victims. Read more

Panel discussion following the screening moderated by San Francisco Supervisor Malia Cohen.

Proceeds from the screening go toward the Artemis Rising Invisible War Recovery Program, a nonprofit recovery program that provides free PTSD treatment to veterans.
