The Ghosts of Jeju won the best film 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…..
