[ News, Culture, June 19 2008] Film depicting father-son N. Korean defectors to open


Despite a growing number of North Koreans who risk their lives to find asylum in South Korea, the refugee issue has rarely gotten attention in the media here, much less on the silver screen.


Crossing, directed by Kim Tae-kyun deals with the miserable reality faced by North Korean defectors. It is based on the true stories of dozens of North Korean defectors, including some involved in the March 2002 incident in which 25 defectors pushed their way past Chinese guards into the Spanish Embassy in Beijing.
