Just a half off-topic. “Half” because that’s not about a Studio Girin production, but this is still about a former project of Aryeom Han, that you may know by now as our Art Director. “Grandma Ocean” was her finale project at Sangmyung University, along with Kang Hui-jin.
“Grandma Ocean” is an 5-minute animated documentary, telling the story of Haenyo. Haenyo are diver-fisherwomen in Jeju Island, south of South Korea. These people are an important cultural piece of Jeju and Korean history.
Well this short movie has been in quite many festivals already. And it will be presented again during the Korean Film Festival in Paris, happening between 29th of October and 5th of November 2013. Unfortunately Aryeom cannot be present at the event, because in New Zealand right now.
So if you happen to be in Paris next week, and in particular on Saturday 2nd of November, don’t hesitate to get tickets to go and watch it in the “Shortcuts #2” section. Then tell us what you thought in comments. 🙂
