LiNK Film Screening: "Seoul Train"

Hosted by LiNK: Liberty in North Korea

October 16, 2012 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm (already occurred)
Fayerweather Hall, Pruyne Lecture Hall

There's more to North Korea than nuclear crisis. Come to LiNK's film screening of "Seoul Train" to discover and discuss the human rights issues and refugee crisis currently taking place in North Korea.

"Seoul Train" is a 2005 documentary that deals with the dangerous journeys of North Korean defectors fleeing through or to China. These journeys are both dangerous and daring, because if they're caught, these people face forced repatriation, torture and possible execution.

In January 2007, "Seoul Train" was awarded the Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Silver Baton for excellence in broadcast journalism. In April 2007, "Seoul Train" was named runner-up in the National Journalism Awards.

Refreshment will be served.
