Liberty in North Korea presents
A new documentary about the North Korean human rights crisis
Tuesday November 22nd, 7pm
LiNK, or Liberty in North Korea, is the only full-time grassroots organization in North America devoted to the North Korean humanitarian and refugee crisis. LiNK provides protection and aid to North Korean refugees hiding in China and, utilizing a modern-day underground railroad through Southeast Asia, rescues refugees and helps them to reach freedom. To this end, we document the stories of North Koreans to tell the world about the North Korea crisis. Our final cut of our film, “Hiding” is the fruition of this documentation. It is a 40 minute long documentary that requires attention and action. We ask that the audience participates in The Reliance, our network of supporter that are standing up for North Korean refugees that rely on us to get them out of hiding. There will be merchandise (t-shirts, DVDs, support programs, etc.) available.

About The Creative Time Summit:
An annual conference bringing together cultural producers to discuss how their work engages pressing issues affecting our world.
The Creative Time Summit includes cultural producers whose international projects consist of a vast array of practices and methodologies that engage with the canvas of everyday life. Participants range from art world luminaries to those purposefully obscure, providing a glimpse into an evolving community concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art. This third iteration of the Summit features presenters with projects in the Living as Form archive.
The third annual Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change is a $25,000 award, generously supported by the Annenberg Foundation, honoring an artist who has committed his or her life’s work to promoting social justice in surprising and profound ways. Past recipients include The Yes Men and Rick Lowe.
