Movie harkens to '07 SKorean abductions by Taliban

In this Friday, Oct. 4, 2013 photo, South Korean director Lee Jang-ho poses before the screening of his film "God's Eye View" at Megabox Haeundae Theater during Busan International Film Festival in Busan, South Korea. The new drama by Lee, well-known in South Korea for his commercial movies in the 1970s and the 1980s, borrows from true events to examine religious conviction in a country that sends out many of the world’s Christian missionaries. The film portrays Christian volunteers kidnapped by Muslim rebels while on an evangelical mission in a fictional Islamic country. The film directly references the 2007 crisis in which 23 members of Saemmul Presbyterian Church were taken as hostages by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2007, and two of them were killed.
