NKHR, with the Hallyuwood Film Club, are hosting another movie screening of the 2012 North Korean Human Rights International Film Festival movie called the "Traveler from the North (여행자)" (w/English subs), a documentary called "North Korea Through the Eyes of Witnesses" and a Q&A session with a North Korean defector (in English & Korean) after the movie!
We will show a documentary called "North Korea Through the Eyes of Witnesses." The documentary presents women, children and political prison camp issues in North Korea. Seven victims describe their experiences of horror. The video is intertwined with secret footages shot in North Korea. The documentary was produced in 2011 by the Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights.
"Traveler from the North (여행자)", directed by Lee Won Sik, is about a North Korean single mother defector and how she deals with the hardships she faces as she settles down in South Korea., 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. This film received financial support from the film festival (2012 North Korean Human Rights International Film Festival).

We will also have a Q&A with a North Korean defector following the movie. At this event, we will have Chung Kwang Sung (정광성), who will 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.
