Update: "Beyond Utopia" to kick-off the Camden International Film Festival!

Filmmaker Madeleine Gavin offers a suspenseful look into the lived experience of fleeing North Korea.

This is BIG NEWS! 'Beyond Utopia' is going to kick-off the Camden International Film Festival in Maine next month!


The film will screen:


- THURSDAY 9.14, 7:00pm @ Journey's End

- THURSDAY 9.14, 8:00pm @ Camden Opera House - Auditorium


In 'Beyond Utopia', filmmaker Madeleine Gavin offers a suspenseful look into the lived experience of fleeing North Korea. We meet a mother desperate to reunite with the child she was forced to leave behind; a family of five — including small children and an elderly grandmother — embarking on a treacherous journey across the Yalu River and into the hostile mountains of China; and a man of God on a mission to help vulnerable people, at the risk of his own safety.


By embarking on this journey, they risk severe punishment and possible execution - all to abandon a paradise they’ve believed in their whole lives.

This gripping, visceral, and urgent film embeds the viewer with these families as they attempt their perilous escapes. This doc is a singular, illuminating, and unforgettable cinematic experience.

*RandomGood Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of this year's Camden International Film Festival.
