"Located on the border between North Korea and China, the Amnok River, or Yalu River in Chinese, separates the two countries by just 48 meters.


An upcoming film, titled '48M' captures the devastating circumstances that drive North Koreans to escape as well as what happens when they get caught.

The film is co-produced and financed by a group of North Korean defectors, including An Hyuk who escaped the infamous Yodok concentration camp, and was first premiered overseas. It was screened at the U.S. Congress in Washington and the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva in September. American human rights activist Suzanne Scholte, who has been working extensively for North Korean refugees, was involved with the U.S. promotion of the film."
