Progressive Film Club Screenings: The Ghosts of Jeju and The Brainwashing of my Dad

category dublin | arts and media | event notice author Saturday November 19, 2016 23:25author by pfg - Progressive Film Club Report this post to the editors

Building for War and how Nixon's plans ended in Trump.

For our last scheduled screening of 2016 we have two amazing films. The first "The Ghosts of Jeju" brings us to the island of Jeju in South Korea. The second "How they Brainwashed my Dad" tells of the effect of US "hate radio" on listeners, mainly of the white middle-aged variety.

2.00 pm The Ghosts of Jeju

This film tells the story of the residents and workers of Gangjeong (pop. 1800). Their livelihoods are threatened by the Korean governments decision to build a massive naval base to accommodate Americas military pivot to Asia. The villagers have been protesting the construction of the base 24 hours a day over five years. Not only are they fighting to save their village, but the entire ecosystem of the area which has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere preserve.

Director Regis Tremblay ( 2013) - (80mins)

3.30 pm The Brainwashing of my Dad

Jen Senko, a documentary filmmaker, looks at the rise of right-wing media through the lens of her WWII vet father who changed from a life-long, non-political Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic after his discovery of talk radio on a lengthened commute to work. In trying to understand how this happened, she uncovers some of the forces behind it: a plan under Nixon to create a media for the GOP; the Lewis Powell Memo, urging
business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion.

Director: Jen Senko - (90mins )
