"The film Yodok Story follows a 36 year old North Korean defector, Jung Sung San, who has managed to escape through China to South Korea." [1]

Belarusian Waltz: "In Belarus, the totalitarian regime cracks down on all opposition. Anyone criticising the dictator risks imprisonment and torture. Our film, Belarusian Performance is on the incredible personal story of the performance artist Alexander Pushkin, who is one of very few who is not scared. Facing grave consequences he organizes public stunts that mock president Lukashenka. Through his art and sense of humour we take a deep dive into the soul of the Belarusian people.
