tour_hiding_badge_btnOn Thursday, March 3, Upper Room will be partnering with Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) to host a screening of Hiding. The film will provide a glimpse into the perils oppressed North Koreans face as they escape to China in search of freedom. As LiNK says,

“While the world focuses on North Korea’s security issue, hundreds of thousands of North Koreans continue to be enslaved in prison camps today. Up to 300,000 have also escaped to China – seeking food, medicine, work, or freedom from political and religious oppression. Among the 300,000, 70 to 90 percent of North Korean women are trafficked and sold into the sex trade, and more and more refugees are fleeing to Southeast Asia to escape imprisonment upon repatriation by China. Through LiNK’s networks, these refugees can be helped and given new lives. ‘Hiding’ is a film about a group of North Korean refugees hiding in China today, and their attempt to escape.”

The screening will take place at 7pm at 5828 Forward Ave. in Squirrel Hill. For more details, check out the Facebook event page. Questions? Email chris@pghupperroom.com.
