In the week that the grim findings of a UN report into human rights abuses in North Korea are presented to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, a film about religious persecution there will premiere in Shoreditch.
The UK premiere of The Apostle: He Was Anointed by God will take place at Amnesty International’s Shoreditch headquarters tonight.
Acclaimed South Korean Director Kim Jin-moo depicts the anguish of North Koreans who attempt to practice their faith in secret, and the merciless pursuit of them by the authorities who hunt them down.
The film offers a glimpse into the complete control over the population that the leadership imposes.
The film will be shown at Amnesty International’s Human Rights Action Centre in New Inn Yard tonight at 7pm.
