Join us for a special screening of 'The Defector' and a discussion with a North Korean resettler. This suspenseful documentary, filmed undercover by award-winning Korean-Canadian filmmaker Ann Shin, follows a human smugglers leading defectors escaping North Korea. Their perilous journey reflects the reality of tens of thousands of North Koreans currently in hiding in China.
Ann Shin illuminates her intimate access with three North Korean individuals in this POV film and explores universal questions about human rights, smuggling and the pursuit of freedom. The film was recently awarded Best Documentary and Best Documentary Director at the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards (Canada's Academy Awards).
