North Koreans in Exile
I'm presenting a benefit screening for a friend's new film about North Korea entitled Kimjongilia on July 13. A discussion with Director NC Heikin and other guests from the human rights advocate community will follow the screening. Proceeds for the evening will help to raise awareness about the situation in North Korea. Tickets are by donation but we're asking everyone to donate $20. We're also having a raffle of T-shirts and will have limited edition posters I've designed to be raffled away to benefit screenings of the film.
Movie Description: "Kimjongilia: The Flower of Kim Jong Il, is the first film to fully expose the disaster through a tapestry of defectors’stories, North Korean propaganda, and original performance. This feature documentary shows why
the defectors fled, describes their hair-raising escapes, and recounts the dangers they face in China, hunted by Chinese as well as North Korean police. These refugees are from every walk of life, from child concentration camp inmates to an elite concert pianist. But their stories all speak of body-and-soul killing repression and paint a picture of a
country so far off the rails it defies belief. Ultimately, these humble heroes are inspiring, for despite their suffering, they hold out hope for a better future."
