A tale of growth, solidarity, joy and sorrow, is presented in this intimate, authentic and vibrant film. The football club Anyang LG Cheetahs maintained a developed fan group known as RED.

To their loyal fans’ delight in 2000 the Cheetahs topped the K-league, but in 2003 their happiness turned to devastation as they learnt the club was relocated to Seoul, leaving them behind. FC Sukhavati tells the story of this group of devoted football fans who decided to fight back and found a new club in Anyang.

The filmmakers showcase the history, culture, and daily lives of the fans’ affection with humour as they fight to develop a citizen-owned club in Anyang. A must see for anyone passionate about football, friendship and the power of a community.

This screening will be followed by an in-person Q&A with directors Hobin Sun and Na Baru.

Screening as part of our Korean Documentary season in partnership with University of Sheffield School of East Asian Studies.
