Audacious maverick action director Ryoo Seung-wan returns to the big screen with THE BATTLESHIP ISLAND. As World War II nears its end, at the site of a huge coalmine on the small island of Hashima (nicknamed “Battleship Island”), tensions run high between the Japanese soldiers, who maintain order with shocking cruelty, and roughly 400 Korean people who were tricked or forced into working there. Then, just as the island’s dark secrets are revealed, the Koreans plot a dramatic escape.
