Storyline

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a country with a very strong social cohesion and the unprecedented admiration of the people for their leader, which is absolutely unique and incomprehensible especially from a Western point of view. The native Korean director Sung-Hyung Cho tries to understand this by accompanying several Koreans from different backgrounds in their daily lives. The film shows the country and its people in a way, as it is rarely done in Western media, non-judgmental and respectful towards the people.

Trivia

In order to make this movie director Sung Hyung Cho had to give back her South-Korean citizenship. It was not only that she was then able to enter North Korea and get a shooting permission there. She could also have gotten problems from the South-Korean side. Traveling to the north is regarded as parricide for a citizen of South Korea and she could have got arrested when reentering South Korea while still owning this passport. Sung Hyung Cho took the German citizenship instead, she lives in Germany since studying there. See more »
