Stories from a still divided Country

North Korea, still supported by Beijing, is rumoured to suffer from continuous famine and is run as a communist regime with Stalinist overtones. The South, heavily supported by Washington, is ruled as a Western-style democracy where shopping malls have appeared on every corner. This economic wealth may not necessarily make South Koreans happier than their Northern brothers and sisters, yet, a growing number of North Koreans risk their lives to get out of what many call the “Hell of the North”.

These films have been made thanks to the courage and determination of a number of thoughtful freedom fighters, and their audiovisual brothers in arms, supporting those who no longer would live within the framework of a deadlock society.
