A public film screening, art donation event and discussion about the situation of North Korean refugees.
Last year, Parsons Illustration students collaborated with Artfully Unforgotten (http://www.artfullyunforgotten.com) donating their art and raising $5000 for an orphanage in Kigali, Rwanda. This semester, Parsons students collaborate with LINK, an organization supporting North Korean refugees in China, by donating art work which will be auctioned off to supporters of the cause, in Spring 2010.
Today, an estimated 250,000 of North Koreans, having escaped the food crisis in North Korea, live as secret refugees in China. The Chinese government arrests and forcibly repatriates illegal North Korean refugees who face human rights abuses upon their return, including forced labor and execution.
Please join us for the screening of Seoul Train, a documentary about North Korean refugees in China, and a discussion with LINK, on Thursday, October 29th, 2009, 7:30 PM at Kellen Auditorium, 66th 5th Avenue.
