YODOK: THE MUSICAL

Join us for this FREE world premiere screening of a film that captures the live theatrical musical whose backstory is explored in Andrzej Fidyk's TFF '09 documentary Yodok Stories. The performance—shot in Seoul, South Korea in 2006—creatively tells the shocking true story of a group of escapees from one of North Korea's most notorious concentration camps.
