Event re-cap: Dumangang

Movie Screening of Dumangang and Discussion with Professor Sun-hee Lee

On Thursday, October 17th, 2013, ANKHR hosted a movie screening of Dumangang, a film directed by Zhang Lu, an acclaimed Korean-Chinese director, and Korean-French co-produced. The movie depicted the tragic and grim reality of life on the DPRK-China border, along the Tumen (or Duman in Korean) River. The film dealt with many grave topics, alluding to violence, rape, and poverty, while also addressed the psychological toll and fear of arrest and deportation, and how one can, under those circumstances, rationally conclude that it is in his best interest to report on a relative, or a neighbor. Following the screening, a discussion was led by Professor Sun-Hee Lee addressing both the film and human rights in North Korea.

Thank you for those who made it–we hope to see more of you at our events.
