Gorae Sanyang was directed by Bae Chang-ho in 1984. Curator Im Hyun-ock will introduce the program and lead a discussion after the screening. The film will be in Korean with English subtitles.

Gorae Sanyang tells the story of Byeong-tae (Kim Soo-chul), a young man who meets a beggar named Min-woo (Ahn) and Choon-ja (Lee Mi-sook), a mute woman being abused by a group of thugs for refusing to serve them as customers. It is a moving story of a challenging journey in which they find a deep friendship and love. Byeong-tae finally realizes that whales do not live in the far away ocean but in his own heart.
