Flood of Screening Requests from Korean Churches in the States
The human documentary Han Gyeong-jik  is set for release in Los Angeles, U.S.A. Han Gyeong-jik is a documentary focusing on the late HAN Gyeong-jik, the most admired pastor by Korean Christians for receiving the Templeton Prize, the so-called the Nobel Prize of religion, and for founding World Vision, an international relief organization. Having already moved a number of spectators when released in Korea in September last year, it will now transfer its great message of love to Los Angeles.
The release of Han Gyeong-jik in Los Angeles was made possible by virtue of intense requests from Korean Christians living in the States, and it will start screening at CGV LA on January 18th. Since the news spread, even more Korean residents in other areas have been asking for screenings of the film. CHEON Jeong-hun, the director expressed his hopes by saying, “I hope the story about the late HAN Gyeong-jik can touch not only Korean residents but also American natives.”
The screening of this film is particularly meaningful because it will be the third Korean religious film meeting American audiences through a stable distribution route after Don‘t Cry for Me Sudan and BABOYA, films about the late priest LEE Tae-seok and the late cardinal KIM Su-hwan, respectively.
