Escape from Mogadishu is a nail-biting political thriller based on a true story starring Kim Yoon-seok (The Chaser) and Huh Joon-ho (Netflix’s Kingdom). Rival diplomats from North Korea and South Korea become trapped as civil war rages in Mogadishu, Somalia. With no aid from either government, their only shot at survival requires uniting with bitter adversaries to escape.
This record-breaking Asian blockbuster was South Korea’s entry for the 2022 Oscars and was the opening film at The London Korean Film Festival 2021.
Prior to the film, Rosetta Milner will be screening It’s Called My Friend Loneliness.
Chesham-born Rosetta was an award winner in last year’s Chorleywood Film Club Young Filmmaker competition.
