Camp 14: Total Control Zone (Mark Wiese, 104**’, 2012, Germany/South Korea)**
How do you reshape your worldview when all you’ve ever known is a North Korean death camp? Shin Dong-Huyk escaped from the labor camp he was born into when he was 23, crossing the border to South Korea. Now he’s trying to make sense of the capitialist world, and come to terms with the torture and psychological indoctrination he’s been subject to his whole life. Interspersed with poignant animations and interviews with former labor camp wardens, this film gives us unique insight into the atrocities of one of the most closed countries in the world.
