In the past decade, up to 100000 defectors have crossed the waters of the Tumen and Yalu Rivers into northeast China to escape from North Korea, the world¹s last closed Communist state. In Crossing Heaven¹s Border, premiering July 1st, WIDE ANGLE tells the moving and dramatic stories of a few of them. Intrepid South Korean journalists risk their lives filming undercover for ten months to capture the haunting stories first-hand.
