THE DEFECTOR NOMINATED FOR TWO CANADIAN SCREEN AWARDS
The Defector: Escape from North Korea has been nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards in the Television category – “Best Documentary Program” and “Best Direction in a Documentary Program.” The nominations follow The Defector: Interactive’s recent Digi Award win.
As media attention is drawn towards the high profile celebrities currently venturing to North Korea, The Defector gets an inside perspective on those risking their lives to flee from the starvation and oppression of North Korea.
THE DEFECTOR: Escape from North Korea is an undercover documentary by director Ann Shin that follows Dragon, a smuggler who takes North Korean defectors across borders for a living. His latest undercover trip with Sook-Ja and Yong-hee takes an unexpected turn when they are left stranded in China. This is just the start of an extraordinary 5,000 km journey.
