If you were ever interested in the Korean freediving women known as Haenyeo, there’s a documentary out now that depicts their lives.
“Three Moons of Biyangdo” follows the story of a disappearing, centuries-old tradition that encapsulates the delicate balance, and deep connections, between humanity and the natural world.
Kyung-Mi, Geum-Mi and Jeong-Mi Moon are three sisters, now in their sixties, known as Haenyeo or “sea women,” taking only what they need from the sea one breath at a time.
The film is an albert-certified (BAFTA), sustainable production that won the Directors Vision Award at the 2023 Blue Water Film Fest.
