This short film is a collage of footage of what tourists are arranged to see in Pyongyang, North Korea. It starts with a spectacular and immaculately timed performance of the Korean People's Army Merited Choir, which is quite possibly performed by several thousands of people at any one time. Then the footage brings us to various buildings and landmarks of the capital. The mysterious veil of the Iron Curtain is hereby slightly lifted, allowing people from outside North Korea to get a glimpse of what Pyongyang is like. Then, the footage is edited with a flood, thereby "reflecting" on the power that gives rise to the nation's current status. The lack of people on the streets, buildings and indeed anywhere that does not involve a performance is telling something, and I sense the metaphor that without people, there is no point in having power.
