The story of Comrade Joe, the last American Defector in North Korea...An "unforgettable documentary" (New York Daily News), Crossing The Line is the "absolutely fascinating" (Hollywood Reporter) story of James Joseph Dresnok, a US Army private whoin 1962 stunned the world by walking across the violently contested DMZ that cuts Korea in two and defecting to the communist North.Taking full advantage of access granted by the government of North Korea, the "axis of evil's" mysterious and feared rogue state, director Daniel Gordon (The Game of Their Lives, A State of Mind) combines historical footage with contemporary interviews to both uncover the Kim-Jong II regime and end 44 years of secrecy and rumor by allowing Dresnok to tell his own story.Despite spending more than half his life living, working, and raising a family in North Korea, "Comrade Joe" as Western media dubbed Dresnok when he walked into infamy at the height of the Cold War, remains a man of eternally divided loyalties.From his appalling childhood in a rural 1950's Virginia foster home, to interviews with his fellow GI's, to "amazing footage" (New York Post) of Dresnok playing the villain in Kim-Jong II's personally produced propaganda films, Crossing The Line "makes an already compelling story even more so" (Hollywood Reporter) by intimately revealing a character "worthy of Werner Herzog's delusional hero-victims" (New York Sun).
