Indie Memphis is partnering with Shady Grove Presbyterian Church to present a free screening of the documentary film Hiding at 7 pm Wednesday, February 23 at Malco Theatre's Studio on the Square.
Each year, North Koreans flee their country due to human rights abuses, starvation and to reunite with their families, creating an emergency situation that is absent from the public eye. With up to 300,000 North Korean refugees hiding in the border region of China and North Korea, Hiding tells the story of a group of North Korean refugees attempting to find freedom in a modern day underground railroad -- or face being caught and sent back to punishment through hard labor and even execution.
What: Documentary film Hiding with post-screening conversation
When: 7 pm Wednesday, February 23
Where: Studio on the Square (2105 Court Avenue, Memphis TN)
Admission: Free and open to the public
The screening will be followed by a conversation with traveling "nomads" from the group Liberty in North Korea (LiNK), which produced the film as part of their mission to redefine the North Korea crisis through creative storytelling while providing emergency relief to North Korean refugees and pursuing an end to the human rights crisis. LiNK nomads will talk about how their organization is rescuing refugees from hiding, and how audience members can help.
