PARK CITY, Utah (Kyodo) Two Canadian filmmakers were shocked and intrigued by a newspaper article in 2002 that reported North Korea’s admission that it had abducted Japanese citizens to train spies, and so they made a film about it.

Patty Kim and Chris Sheridan, codirectors and producers of the documentary “Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story,” said after the film’s premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, that their main purpose was to translate the family’s story for a U.S. audience, as the abduction issue is still ongoing.
