I watched a riveting movie this weekend about a North Korean political prisoner named Shin Dong-Huyk. Born at a slave labor camp, the film chronicles his life.
What he has gone through is almost surreal, and it’s hard to believe that people are sent to life sentences involving harsh labor, torture and near-starvation for minor reasons.
An interesting detail in the film are the interviews with former N. Korean prison camp guards, who speak about the crimes they committed.
It’s a film worth watching. The trailer is below. Thankfully, Shin escaped the camp. He is a living witness to the crimes against humanity occurring in North Korea.
