Beyond Utopia

Winner of the Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, Beyond Utopia is an astonishing and unforgettable film experience. In telling the incredible story of several families as they attempt to escape harsh oppression in North Korea, the film powerfully reveals a world most of us have never seen. Made under conditions of considerable risk and hardship, Beyond Utopia also portrays the remarkable courage and determination of Sengeun Kim, a pastor who defected from North to South Korea and who now facilitates North Korean defections. MNFF Selects is proud to present the Vermont Premiere of Beyond Utopia
