I Am Hopeman (아이엠 호프맨)

아이엠 호프맨 (a-i-aem ho-peu-maen)

Directed by Na Hyun-tae (나현태)


77min | Release date in South Korea :

"Dong-dong Village," the largest slum in Cambodia located in the capital of Phnom Penh, is the location of this documentary that speaks of hope. In the slum, children are able to survive today by picking up refuse that others won't, selling vegetables and other things. There are no books, no toys, no study, and no school in their world. There are no dreams.

One day, people came from a place called Korea. These people set up a "school" on this abandoned land that no longer cares for its own, and the school is totally out of place. Hope School is where the Korean Principal Lim Man-ho and the Cambodian school children will meet.

This film is the 8th year of their story.
