Life in “Little Pyongyang”: a North Korean in New Malden

A new documentary explores the nuances of life as a defector in Britain

New Malden, less than ten miles from the DPRK's London embassy in Acton Town, has historically had a large ethnic Korean population and boasts one of the largest resettled populations of North Koreans outside of South Korea.

Since 2014, British filmmaker Roxy Rezvany has been seeking to document the lives of North Koreans who have left the DPRK and resettled in the small town in south-west London.
