Dr. Jieun Cho

This touching documentary reveals a unique way of life that is on the verge of extinction due to changes in tradition and external threats. Over the course of six years, the film traces the life of the oldest living haenyeo (“diving women”) on Jeju Island, who laments the current state of the maritime environment, and her bond with her young apprentice.

This film will be introduced by Dr. Jieun Cho.
