“Beyond Utopia” had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received universal acclaim and won the Audience Award for U.S. Documentary Competition. It has now since gone on to receive four Critics Choice Documentary Award nominations, including Best Documentary Feature, Best Director, and Best Editing for the film’s director and editor, Madeleine Gavin. It is truly one of, if not the best, documentary of 2023. Madeleine was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about her work on the film which involved a lot of risk, pre-planning and is an ongoing issue for those still trapped in North Korea and seeking escape today. Please be sure to take a listen and check out the film, which will be playing in limited release on November 3rd. Thank you, and enjoy!
