Crossing Borders' Project "The Lovers and the Despot" Premieres at Sundance

Our Crossing Borders project The Lovers and the Despot is selected for the Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Documentary Competition where it will have its world premiere.

The film follows the collapse of the glamorous romance, a celebrity director and his actress ex-wife who are kidnapped by film-obsessed dictator Kim Jong-il. Forced to make films in extraordinary circumstances, they get a second chance at love—but only one chance at escape.
