To celebrate the release of Justin Chon’s politically charged ‘Gook’ on DVD, we’re offering the chance for you to enjoy this fresh and vital Korean-American take on the LA riots, with a special box of Korean snacks and a DVD copy of the film.
April 1992: South Central Los Angeles. Eli and Daniel, two Korean-American brothers, struggle to keep their late-fathers shoe store in business in the LA neighbourhood of Paramount. Two months behind on rent and indebted to various gangs, the job is only made better by the store’s unofficial third employee, Kamilla, a streetwise 11-year-old African American girl with whom the pair have formed an unlikely friendship.
Kamilla ditches school, Eli stresses over the shop, and Daniel seemingly has his head in the clouds. It’s just another typical day until the Rodney King verdict is read and riots break out. As chaos moves towards them and tensions escalate, the trio are forced to defend the store, witnessing events that will make them contemplate both the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family.
Gook provides a fresh and vital take on the LA riots, relocating from South Central LA, to focus on the effects of the chaos on the surrounding communities and examining these pivotal events from a Korean-American point of view.
Written, directed by and starring Justin Chon (Twilight series_) with Simone Baker (American Horror Story_), Curtiss Cook Jr. (The Breaks), and comedian and YouTube star David So.
Gook is out now on DVD and Digital
