London East Asia Film Festival – Rivercide: The Secret Six (2019)

Mon 28 Oct 2019 @ 17:00 · Events

Rivercide: The Secret Six The London East Asia Film Festival was established in 2015. LEAFF brings an exciting line-up of films from East Asia to the London audience each year. This year will be the 4th Edition of LEAFF.

Tonight, LEAFF presents a documentary addressing social and political issues in Korea: Rivercide: The Secret Six (2019), directed by Kim Byeongki.

The Korean news publication, Oh-My-News has been following former Korean president Lee Myung-bak regarding the ‘Pan Korea Grand Waterway’ project that he proclaimed as his main election pledge during his presidential candidate campaign. This film raises the issue of the ‘4 Great Rivers project’ by documenting those who sided with Lee’s government and those who stood their grounds to preserve the Geum, Nakdong, Han, and Yeongsan Rivers, and resist these rivers from being destroyed.

Doors open at 16.30, for a 17.00 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Reserved tickets £10 (£8 students/concessions) plus booking fee available from Eventbrite.
