        Heaven on Earth | Wide Angle

        This video from Wide Angle offers a look inside North Korea since the 1994 ascension to power of “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il—a dictator whose brutal and often incompetent policies resulted in an economic collapse and the subsequent "Great Famine" of the mid-90s, and whose secret police continue to suppress dissenters. In contrast, South Korea represents "heaven" to North Korean defectors, who seek to find there a "first world" standard of living and political freedom.
