Madame B, histoire d'une Nord-Coréenne

by Jero Yun International Documentary Film / Competition

In order to increase her income and take better care of her family, Madame B sets off on the arduous journey from North Korea to China – where her smugglers sell her to a Chinese farmer. Keen to survive, Madame B not only adjusts to life with her new husband and family, she also learns to love them. While in China, she sets up her own smuggling ring to help North Korean families flee to South Korea. Torn between her simple but secure life in China and the desire to see her sons again, Madame B decides to set off on a second adventurous journey. Upon arrival in South Korea, she is, however, left bitterly disappointed. Director Jero Yun accompanied Madame B over the course of several years and fashions a fascinating portrait of a woman who is as courageous as she is strong.
