[The Chosun Ilbo, March 17 2008] Daring Movie Tells Plight of N.Korean Refugees

Amid growing interest from the global community in the Chosun Ilbo documentary "On the Border," another Korean film about North Korean refugees is set to be released in May.

"Crossing" is the first Korean feature film to deal with the miserable reality faced by North Korean defectors, including laborers in a logging camp and teenagers who survive by begging and stealing. The 2006 movie "South of the Border" dealt with the story of separated North Korean lovers, but "Crossing" focuses on the refugees' struggle to survive.
