Documentary captures plight of North Korean refugees

Each year North Koreans flee their country due to human rights abuses and starvation to reunite with their families, creating an emergency situation that is absent from the public eye. The documentary Hiding tells the story of a group of refugees attempting to find freedom in a modern day underground railroad — or face being caught and sent back to a life of hard labor and even execution.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m., Wed., Oct. 20, in 114 Arts & Science Building. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by members of MU chapter of Liberty in North Korea (LiNK), who will provide additional information about the North Korea crisis.
