Regis Tremblay, award-winning, feature-length documentary “The Ghosts of Jeju” is his will be screened at noon Saturday, Nov. 14, at Railroad Cinema.

Regis was born and raised in Waterville, is an independent filmmaker living in Woolwhich. He will be present to discuss the film and answer questions at the free screening.

In 2012, Regis went to Jeju Island in South Korea to document a six year continuous protest against the construction of a massive naval base to accommodate America’s “pivot to Asia.”

What he learned there about America’s complicity in horrendous massacres before and during the Korean conflict motivated him to make “The Ghosts of Jeju,” a troubling, but inspiring film about indigenous people fighting for survival, the protection of the environment, and for a free and transparent democracy.

Since its release, “The Ghosts of Jeju” has been seen around the world and has been translated into Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, Spanish and Italian. Regis has personally screened the film more than 100 times around the country and the film has been seen in 25 colleges and universities here in the U.S., Japan, Korea, the UK and France.
