Event Description
Women On The Land / Haenyeo: Women Of The Sea

Women On The Land: Creating Conscious Community

This film highlights the work of women in the Northern California coastal community of Mendocino County over the past 40 years.  It includes archival footage of those who founded "Country Women," the extremely successful feminist publication and how-to magazine for women’s self-sufficiency.  Featuring the work women in this community have done to care for the environment of our coastal land and sea over the years, the film follows the lives of women farming now, and explains why the sustainable, organic, local food movement is essential in our current world of dwindling natural resources and economic decline.

Haenyeo: Women Of The Sea

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 doc 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.

Haenyeo: Women Of The Sea - 11 min. USA

Women On The Land: Creating Conscious Community - 57 min. USA
