Seoul Train

THE FILM “SEOUL TRAIN” was presented by LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) at the University of Missouri on October 7, 2009. The film follows three groups of refugees who have escaped North Korea and are searching for freedom through the “modern day underground railroad”. Estimates of 50,000 up to 400,000 refugees have fled to neighboring countries, risking torture and execution if captured and repatriated to North Korea. 70% of North Korean women and children who escape into China face serious exploitation and sex trafficking. To date, 17,000 refugees have travelled via this “underground railroad” and eventually settled in the U.S., South Korea, Canada and Europe. 

Seoul Train is the Winner of the 2007 duPont Award.

LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) is an organization dedicated to eradicating  human trafficking, exploitation, and slavery. The LiNK website is http://www.linkglobal.org
