Film screening: Breathing underwater

In association with In one drop of water

Join us for a special screening of Breathing underwater, an in-depth documentary depicting the life of haenyeo, the women divers of Jeju Island in South Korea. Shot over seven years by director Ko Hee Young, the film follows a group of women who dive without oxygen tanks and rely on age-old breathing techniques to bring sea treasures to the surface. This 1,500 year-old cultural practice was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2016.

Presented by the Korea Cultural Centre Australia.
