Description

Join the Korea Future Initiative and Connect: North Korea on Dec 3rd at 7.15pm in New Malden Methodist Church for a fundraiser screening of 'Little Pyongyang,' a short documentary exploring the struggle of a North Korean, Joong-wha Choi, to leave behind his homeland. Mr Choi and the documentary's Director, Roxy Rezvany, will join after the screening for a Q&A. Tickets are £5 in advance, £7 on the doors.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will be split between funding the rescue of a North Korean refugee from China and for English-language lessons for North Korean refugees in the UK.
About the film:

'Little Pyongyang' is a tale of one North Korean’s struggle to leave behind the homeland, Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in the DPRK, lives today with his wife and kids in a sleepy London suburb. Despite enjoying the new found comforts of his British life, and being emancipated from the pressures of the North Korean state, his dilemma lies in a desire to return to the land that betrayed him, but is undoubtedly his true home. The film tracks his reflections on both why he left North Korea and the state of his day to day life over the course of several months, in what is ultimately a portrait of loss, longing, and the complexities of healing from trauma.

With exclusive access to one of the world’s largest community on North Korean defectors, Joong-wha’s story extends to the community he lives alongside. At a time when the world is wrapped up in the exchanges of pomp and bravado between two theatrical but powerful world leaders, we recognise the North Korean defectors on Britain’s doorstep, and follow Joong-wha as he considers his mission to seek change for North Korea.
