Beyond Utopia (2023)
A suspenseful look at the lengths people will go to gain freedom, Beyond Utopia follows various individuals as they attempt to flee one of the most oppressive places on Earth, a land they grew up believing was a paradise, North Korea.
This award winning Oscar contender from director Madeleine Gavin is the very definition of brave film making. Shot entirely without recreations or dramatisation on handheld cameras, this documentary is an eye-opening glimpse into a repressive alien culture and the desperate lengths a family will go to for their freedom. A must see!
The Guardian ★★★★
