Indie Lens Pop-Up – ‘Free Chol Soo Lee’

March 29, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a slice of pizza and a free film screening of ‘Free Chol Soo Lee’ by Julie Ha, Eugene Yi, Su Kim, Jean Tsien, & Sona Jo; supported in part by the Idaho Humanities Council and PBS.

_

Sentenced to death for a lurid 1973 San Francisco murder, Korean immigrant Chol Soo Lee was set free after a pan-Asian solidarity movement of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese Americans helped to overturn his conviction. After 10 years of fighting for his life inside San Quentin, Lee found himself in a new fight to rise to the expectations of the people who believed in him. On his journey from an inspiring icon to a swing-shift janitor struggling with drug addiction, Chol Soo Lee personifies the ravages of America’s prison industrial complex.
