Documentary about North Korean refugees on Sunday

This sounds like an interesting event. The District Church, a non-denominational church that meets at the Next Step Public Charter School (3047 15th Street NW), is showing a documentary about North Korea: specifically an organization that helps refugees and one particular refugee. Here's a clip, and more info:
Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is a grassroots organization devoted to the North Korean human rights and humanitarian crises. LiNK staff are traveling to DC to show the documentary, Danny from North Korea on Sunday, March 3 at 3PM at The District Church.

Every year thousands of North Koreans make the dangerous journey across the border to escape oppression and poverty.

In March of 2005, Danny was one of them. Danny crossed into China and escaped a life of indoctrination, routine public executions, and starvation. As Danny traveled, he saw a world he never knew existed. A world where movement was not monitored by the government, information was readily available, and most importantly at the time, there was enough food to fill his empty belly.

Come hear more about Danny's story and how LiNK is assisting other North Korean refugees.
