跨越 Crossing the Line (94分鐘)
(Daniel Gordon / UK / 2007)
In 1962, a U.S. soldier sent to guard the peace in South Korea deserted his unit, walked across the most heavily fortified area on earth and defected to the Cold War enemy, the communist state of North Korea. This is the story of a man who found a happiness the global media tells us is impossible. Now, after 45 years, the story of Comrade Joe, the last American defector in North Korea, is told.
