about

INDIGO SPOTLIGHT: Shin's experience is no typical prison story of unjust arrest, descent into barbaric survival, and redemptive liberation. He is a man born into the prison system and conditioned to snitch on his own family. When he escapes and wanders into the world, the deep flaws of his personality emerge. But, while Shin's difficult story is unique, his experience is not. He stands for the hundred thousand prisoners living in largely forgotten labour camps that have outlasted the Soviet gulag and have no celebrity champion. He speaks for the 25 million North Koreans living in a country stuck in a technological and political Cold War time-warp. He is only able to tell his story because he had the luck and courage to cross the camp wire. His harsh prison life and improbable journey to freedom is sometimes hard to read. Nevertheless, Shin's story challenges us to cast our eyes over the darker parts of the world and consider the fragile boundary between barbarity and humanity.
