KIMJONGILIA

Description: The first film to fully focus on the humanitarian crisis in North Korea, N.C. Heikin's stylish and deeply moving documentary (executive produced by Mike Figgis and James Eagan) brings astonishing and previously unseen interviews with survivors of North Korea's vast and largely hidden prison camps. Besides weaving together a series of testimonies - and daring escape stories - from concentration camp refugees, defectors and former Korean Army officers, this "passionate and artistic" (John Anderson, Variety) documentary artfully combines state-sponsored propaganda with footage of local musicians and original performance artists.
