Abduction, The Megumi Yokota Story

This has won just about every documentary award out there this year, and it sounds like it will be the one to see:

This is the story of a 13-year-old Japanese girl who never returned home from school. That was November 1977. Years later, her parents found out the truth: she had been abducted by North Korean spies!

ABDUCTION points to one of today's biggest human rights and political crises in Asia - the abduction issue, is one of the major untold stories behind Japan and North Korea's tense relations, a key factor affecting nuclear talks.

The LA Times calls it "Extraordinary! Spine-tingling!" and a work of "Narrative Mastery!"

Opens January 12, 2007 in New York City:
CINEMA VILLAGE, 22 E. 12th Street, New York, NY, (212) 924-3363

And we should hope, The Moxie???
