Asia After Five: Behind the scenes in North Korea

Event Details


Thu 28 Jun 2018


05.30pm until 07.30pm


Asia New Zealand Foundation Level 6, DLA Piper Tower 2 205 Queen Street



This Asia After Five event features a crew from Sunday TVNZ who were granted access to parts of North Korea that no foreigner had visited previously. They travelled to Pyongyang and the North Korean countryside in April to report on the collaboration between New Zealand conservationists from the Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre and their North Korean counterparts.

The crew travelled to North Korea with the support of an Asia New Zealand Foundation media travel grant. Come along to hear what it was like shooting a story in North Korea.

We are happy for you to invite a colleague or friend to this event.

For catering purposes, please ensure they are registered.

Please also note that you will need to enter DLA Piper Tower 2 before 6pm because the elevators shut after that time.
