This is an award-winning documentary on modern slavery, namely sex trafficking. There are currently at least 27 million people enslaved worldwide that's more than double that of the mid-Atlantic slave trade at its peak in the 1800s. This film travels across the globe to expose particularly frightening trends in modern slavery. More importantly, there is hope in fighting this injustice and restoring the lives of its victims. The film is primarily in English but will be shown with Korean subtitles.
BUSAN, South Korea -- South Korea's cities are overrun with cafés. According to the Samsung Economic Research Institute, the number of coffee shops here jumped from about 6,000 in 2008 to 9,400 in 2011. Other studies put the number as high as 17,000 in Seoul alone. There are so many coffee shops in the South Korean capital that the Fair Trade Commission set a limit on the distance between new coffeehouse chains to at least 500 meters.
In addition to Starbucks, which is run by Shinsegae, 40 percent of the nation's cafés are run by the top five Korean brandsâCaffe Bene, Hollys Coffee, Ediya Coffee, Angel-in-us and Tom n' Toms.
This Friday the 12th will be Klickitat's final show. Unless it's not the final show. But it probably is. We are playing at Club Realize, and we wanna record it, so it would be great to have you all come out for a big sloppy goodbye lovefest. We're going to dig deep into the 6 or so years of our set list, plus throw in a few new original tunes.
Gino Brann: guitar and vocals
Kurt Gough: bass
Jim Batcho: drums
Jordan Lewis: keys
Gordon Bazsali Jr: trumpet
Jessie James Halpern: saxamaphone
Special guest vocals by RayRay, Violet Lea, and Mike Edmunds.
The wonderful Violet Lea will open the show at 10:30, and Klickitat will go on around 11:15. Hope to see you there!
