Library screens South Korean drama Thursday, Oct. 27, at 6:00 p.m.

Posted on: October 22, 2016

A fishing boat captain in South Korea is in desperate need of money and agrees to smuggle a group of illegal immigrants from China to South Korea. He waits until the boat is on its way and then he tells his crew the frightening job they have ahead of them.

This Thursday at 6:00 p.m. the Murphy Library is showing the Film Movement selection, Sea Fog, South Korea’s submission in 2015 for the foreign language films at the Oscars.  Haemoo is its name in Korean.

The film is not rated but would not be appropriate for high school. Running time is 111 minutes and the language is Korean with subtitles in English.

When the boat stops to pick up the immigrants the deep fog of the ocean surrounds it. One woman falls into the water and the traumatic moments are just starting.
