Summary
Seoul train: "In order to survive, hundreds of thousands of North Koreans have fled to neighboring China. For North Koreans, life in China is desperate--women are often trafficked into prostitution and children left homeless. Going back is not an option. Defecting from North Korea is a capital offense punishable by torture, forced labor, and execution. Yet the Chinese government, in defiance of international laws, hunts down North Koreans and sends them back. The only hope for the refugees is a secretive network of activists known as the Underground Railroad."--Title screens. Seoul Train documents the activities of this band of international activists who risk their own lives to lead North Korean refugees out of China and into countries that will give them asylum.
North Korea a day in the life: Made in cooperation with the government of North Korea, this is a propaganda film that purports to show the life of an 'average' family in Pyongyang. They have plenty of food, nice clothes, and the children go to schools full of other cheerful children. There are power outages, however, and depictions of the 'Dear Leader' everywhere. This film is a look at a culture so closed that even when putting its very best foot forward, still appears grim, claustrophobic, and stultifying--especially to Westerners.
Birthday boy: In Korea in 1951, a small boy called Manuk is on his way home from school, playing as he goes. Much of his playing concerns war, and imagining life at the front where his father is a soldier. He finally arrives at home to find a parcel on the doorstep where, thinking it is a birthday present, he opens it. But its contents will change his life.
