Ghosts of Jeju film in March – breaking news

For our March film Ghosts of Jeju on Wednesday, March 12 at 12 noon and again at 7 p.m. (potluck at 6:30), we have an exciting update.  Regis Tremblay, the director of the film, will join us in Fresno and he is bringing with him the Korean activist Rosik Park.   Rosik is the one who has circulated a petition to Pope Francis to visit Jeju when he is in Korea in August.   They will be at both showings of the film discussing the film and taking questions and Rosik will play for us during the potluck at 6:30.  Please . . . → Read More: Ghosts of Jeju film in March – breaking news
