Update: "Beyond Utopia" wins audience award at Sundance!
Big congrats to director Madeleine Gavin and to the entire team for this impressive award.
Exciting news! Beyond Utopia, directed by Madeleine Gavin, won the Audience Award: U.S. Documentary at Sundance Film Festival! We're so honored to support this brave and eye-opening film.
Beyond Utopia gives a suspenseful look at the lengths people will go to gain freedom. This moving film follows various individuals as they attempt to flee North Korea, one of the most oppressive places on Earth, a land they grew up believing was a paradise.
"From an 80-year-old woman scaling a jungle-covered mountain in the dead of night while military dogs bark in the background to a mother tearing up as she shows her daughter fruits and flowers for the first time, “Beyond Utopia” is filled with the kind of holy shit how did they get this? footage that the documentary medium exists to preserve." -Indie Wire
Stay tuned for more details about this powerful new film.
