Ann Shin

Journey From North Korea (5.29.2013)

On today’s show we meet a woman who fled North Korea for China, only to be abducted by human traffickers and sold into a marriage. Next, Dick talks with filmmaker Ann Shin, who tells us that it’s not uncommon for defectors to escape North Korea for China and find themselves in greater danger.  Ann Shin’s documentary, The Defector, follows women as they escape. Also in this show, a photographer documents the edges of the country – where North Korea borders South Korea and China.
