Village versus Empire is set on Jeju Island, off the coast of the Korean peninsula one of the Seven Wonders of Nature, and also known as The Island of Stone, Peace Island and a Womans Island a place of beauty and wonder, with more UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites than any single geographic location on Earth.
But, there is trouble in this paradise. It has been transformed militarized. Its fragile ecology and ancient shamanistic traditions are being devastated by the construction of a Navy base for US warships that is perceived by the islanders as a globally dangerous provocation which imperils the islands future and masks its troubled history.
Village versus Empire, dramatizes the threat to Island life and nature, through the eyes and performances of a shaman artist, Dohee Lee, born on the island and deeply troubled by its transformation, the activists who contest its occupation, the residents who have lived through its changes and the archive through which its traumatic past is uncovered.
