The University of Redlands Asian Studies Program Presents The People’s Crisis – Free Screening
A Documentary on the Humanitarian Crisis in North Korea
The Asian Studies Program at the University of Redlands cordially invites the general public and the university community to an educational/social justice presentation on the humanitarian crisis in North Korea by representatives from the non-profit organization Liberty in North Korea (LiNK). The mission of LiNK is 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.”
The presentation will feature the premiere of The People’s Crisis: A Documentary about the Real Crisis in North Korea, followed by a Q & A session.
LiNK’s description of The People’s Crisis: The real crisis in North Korea is not about its reclusive leaders or its nuclear weapons. It is about 24 million people living under the most ruthless system of political oppression ever assembled by humankind. The North Korean people have suffered through crippling poverty, humanitarian disasters, chronic food shortages and a denial of even the most basic of freedoms.
This documentary offers a comprehensive overview of the North Korean people’s crisis, featuring interviews with North Korean refugees who have escaped, their journey to freedom, expert analysis, and insight into some of the little-known grass-roots changes that are happening inside the country.
