Diving Women of Jeju-do

Jeju-do is the largest of Korean islands and lies between Korea and Japan. There, for hundreds of years, women dive without breathing apparatus to the ocean floor and collect shellfish, octopus and urchins that they sell. This ancient woman’s tradition is about to die. Filmmaker Barbara Hammer dives with the women and records the reasons behind their disappearing work and lifestyles.
