Ocean Film Festival - Australia – MARCH 2014
Asians On Film Festival Awards – Summer 2013
Honorable Mention: Haenyeo: Women of the Sea (Kevin Sawicki, Director)
Haenyeo refers to the women free-divers of Jeju Island, South Korea who for centuries have collected sea food without the use of scuba equipment. This short documentary provides a portrait of Chuwar Park, a still active and unbelievably vibrant 82-year-old diver. Examining her daily routine as well as her past, Park sheds light on this unique matriarchal culture that has changed little since the 19th century.
