Documentary film on former N.K. spies set to hit screens next week

SEOUL, Sept. 20 (Yonhap) — In 2000, 63 former long-term political prisoners who were sent to the South as spies were repatriated to the North following an inter-Korean summit during which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to give priority to humanitarian issues in the same year.카지노사이트

But there were 46 former North Korean spies left in the South who were not allowed to go back to their home country because they signed statements giving up communism and advocating capitalism. Only “unconverted” communists were subject to the first-ever repatriation project.

The upcoming documentary film “The 2nd Repatriation,” directed by Kim Dong-won, focuses on the voices of the 46 people who have demanded the Seoul government let them return to their communist homeland for more than 20 years.

The film is a follow-up to the director’s 2004 documentary “Repatriation” about the 63 “unconverted” North Koreans who went back home in 2000.

“The 2nd Repatriation” revolves around Kim Young-shik, one of the remaining North Korean communists living in South Korea. He was sent to the South in 1962, arrested soon afterward and served 27 years in prison. The 90-year-old claimed he was physically and psychologically tortured to convert his ideology and subsequently excluded from the 2000 repatriation.바카라사이트

It took nearly 20 years to complete the film, as Seoul-Pyongyang relations have experienced ups and downs over the cited period, while Kim Young-shik and other former North Korean spies have still not been permitted to go back home.

“After I made the 2004 film, I thought the second repatriation would come soon. So I started filming their stories,” the director said Tuesday in a press conference after a media screening of the 156-minute film. “But their return has been delayed for about 20 years, and I’ve been working on it for the longer-than-expected period.”

Out of the 46 people still seeking to be repatriated, nine people remain alive, and they are 91 years old on average. So far, only one of them was sent to the North after dying of an illness in Seoul in 2005.

He said he thought he is running out of time, because the current geopolitical situation around the Korean Peninsula has discouraged him from remaining hopeful for another inter-Korean agreement on the issue in the near future.

“I hoped to shoot the scene of these people crossing the border and going back to their homeland, but it looks nearly impossible for a while,” he said. “And they are getting older and older, and some will likely pass away soon. So I decided to wrap up this project as soon as possible.”

Kim Young-shik called on the Seoul government to allow him and his colleagues to spend the rest of his life with his family in their homeland.

“The country is divided, as well as our families,” he said during the press conference. “I’m very old and my end is nearing. I want to see my hometown.”온라인카지노

George Russell (Mercedes) was also on the podium in 3rd place with his teammate Lewis Hamilton one spot behind him in 4th place and Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri) finishing in 5th place in the 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix a week ago.

F1 Heads to Great White North for Canadian Grand Prix

So with Verstappen victorious last weekend in Baku City, a different Formula One driver has now won all five runnings of the 51-lap Azerbaijan Grand Prix, a race which is contested on a 20-turn, 3.73 mile (6.0003 km) street circuit track in the Desert heat.

Here at the 2022 Canadian Grand Prix, Brit Hamilton is the Defending champion, winning the 2021 F1 Grand Prix du Canada with Sebastian Vettel in 2nd place on the podium and Charlec Leclerc finishing in 3rd place at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montréal, Quebec.

The Canadian Grand Prix is a 70-lap, 189.727 miles (305.27 km) run on the 2.71-mile (4.361 km) Circuit Gilles Villeneuve street circuit in Montréal, Quebec and this will be race #1,066 in Formula One history.

With the 1st place finish in Azerbaijan, Verstappen remained in 1st place (150 points) in the 2022 Formula One Driver standings, 21 points ahead of his Red Bull Racing RBPT teammate Pérez (129s) in 2nd place and 34 points ahead of Charles Leclerc (116 points).

The 2022 Formula One season began up earlier this year so it wouldn’t conflict with the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup, which is being held in Qatar, and Qatar won’t host a Grand Prix F1 race this year but will be back on the Formula One circuit calendar in 2023.

There are a total of 23 F1 Grand Prixs being held this 2022 season, a new circuit record, including a new Mini-Grand Prix and that inaugural 57-lap Miami Grand Prix from the Sunshine State won by Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing who are still doing very well.

Verstappen Staying Hot in the Canadian Grand Prix?

Max Verstappen (-116 to win 2022 Canadian Grand Prix, and his Red Bull Racing RBPT teammate Sergio Pérez (+275) are both doing very well at this point in the season and worth consideration every Sunday as they battle it out for the championship.

Dutchman Verstappen—the son of former Formula 1 driver Joe Verstappen—has won 4 of the last 6 races on the F1 circuit and online oddsmakers have responded here, making him the prohibitive favorite (-116) to win in the Great white North on Sunday.

So handicapping the Pole Position marketplace, seeing that LeClerc and his Ferrari have W12 of the 13 Pole Positions in all racing events, backing him at -154 odds in that Qualifying betting market on Saturday is the logical call and the best of the two below.

This 73rd season of Formula One Championship Racing has evolved into a three Driver race between Verstappen (150 points), and Pérez (129 points), and Leclerc (116 points) as we quickly approach the halfway mark of this fast-moving 2022 Formula One season.

The Drivers with the most Canadian Grand Prix Wins history are Lewis Hamilton (7) and Michael Schumacher (7) followed by Nelson Piquet (3), Jacky Ickx (2), Alan Jones (2), Ayrton Senna (2), Jackie Stewart (2), Pedro Rodriguez (2), and Sebastian Vettel (2).

Ferrari is the Constructor with the most Wins in the Canadian Grand Prix with 14 followed closely by McLaren (13), then Williams (7), Brabham (4), Mercedes (4), Benetton (2), Lotus (2), Tyrrell (2), and Red Bull (2). Mercedes won here in 2019 (Hamilton).

Ferrari is the Engine Manufacturer with the most Wins here with 14 races followed by Ford (12), Mercedes (10), Renault (6), BMW (4), Honda (4), Chevrolet (2), and Climax (20).

F1 fans and gamblers can watch the race in Canada on TSN (English) or RDS (French), and it airs in Australia (FOX Sports), Brazil (Band), France (Canal+), Italy (Sky Sports F1), Japan (DAZN), Germany (Sky Sports F1), Netherlands (Viaplay), as well as in Spain (DAZN).

Next up in Round 10 on the 2022 Formula One race schedule will be the 2022 Formula 1 British Grand Prix on Sunday, July 3 (ESPN), followed by the 2022 Formula 1 Austria Grand Prix on Sunday, July 10 (ESPN) in Round 11.
