Jayu’s North Korean Human Rights Film Festival is three day event  taking place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from October 25-27, 2013. This unique experience will include a variety of films from different regions as well as special guests including North Korean defectors, filmmakers, artists, activists and other important players surrounding North Korean issues.

Reel Asian is proud to co-present Comrade Kim Goes Flying on Friday, October 25, 7:00 PM at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Comrade Kim Yong Mi is a North Korean coal miner. Her dream of becoming a trapeze artist is crushed by the arrogant trapeze star Pak Jang Phil who believes miners belong underground and not in the air. Comrade Kim goes Flying is a heartwarming story of trying to make the impossible possible. Comrade Kim goes Flying is North Korea’s first “girl power” movie and the story of a girl reaching for her own dream and carving out her own future. Trailer here.

Jayu is a youth based volunteer organization which collaborates with and empowers artists to raise awareness of human rights abuses through the arts.

  1. I am doing a school project on publicity, PR and Social Media promotional use in Independent Films and short films and this would help me very much! Thank you. If anyone is looking for interns to work at the Film festival…please help me.
