NKHR is hosting a movie screening of the groundbreaking Korean movie "Crossing" (w/English subs) and a Q&A session with a North Korean defector (in English & Korean) after the movie to answer your questions about the dangerous defection process and the abysmal human rights situation in North Korea.
"Crossing", directed by Kim Tae-gyun, follows the emotionally overwhelming journey of a North Korean man who illegally leaves the country in a desperate attempt, despite the risks, to find a medicine for his sick wife. The movie portrays the incredible hardships of an average North Korean citizens and the gravity of the risks many defectors are at the risk of and must confront.
We will also have a Q&A with a North Korean defector following the movie. At this event, we will have Kim Hyuk, who has been kind enough to share his experience and answer questions to better depict the reality of the escape from North Korea.
This event is a part of the 'North Korean Human Rights Refugee Rescue Fund' and all fees and donations will be used to support and save vulnerable North Korean refugees who are hiding in countries like China, still waiting to be rescued from the risk of repatriation and prison camps.
