Yongmi Park grew up in North Korea, but now lives in the north of England with her family. Under a Different Sky is a nine minute film, made in collaboration with Mrs Park. She describes the circumstances leading up to her forced marriage in China, and how, on escape, she was sentenced to hard labour in North Korea. This is her story of survival.
‘Yongmi Park’ is a pseudonym. She is not identified in the film in order to protect her and her family from potential reprisals.
