Crossing Heaven’s Border Airs Tuesday on KBDI

DENVER – September 8, 2009 – KBDI invites you to watch WIDE ANGLE Crossing Heaven’s Border on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m.

Crossing Heaven’s Border uncovers the hardships of North Korean defectors who crossed the waters of the Tumen and Yalu Rivers into northeast China to escape from North Korea, the world’s last closed Communist State.  

Crossing Heaven’s Border reveals the plight of North Korean defector from the point of view of South Korean Journalists who risk their live filming undercover for ten months to capture the haunting stories first-hand.  The journalists will introduce viewers to moving and dramatic stories including a mother working in China as a tour-guide to support her six-year old son and a ten-day journey of a teenage girl and boy smuggles across land to reach the South Korean embassy.

WIDE ANGLE anchor Aaron Brown further explores the topic in a post-film interview with Debra Liang-Fenton, a human rights expert with the United States Institute of Peace and the former Executive Director of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea. 

A full schedule of air times for all of the programs can be found at www.KBDI.org.
