Welcome to Hollywood Kim Jong-il style. North Korea’s film industry is a vital tool in the regime’s vast propaganda machinery. Now, for the first time ever, foreign filmmakers have been allowed into the country’s only film school – an elite institution where young talents are trained to create works that will not only entertain, but help shape the psyche of an entire nation.

Official Selection – 2013 Hot Docs Canadian Documentary Film Festival, 2013 Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival, 2013 Southeast Asian Film Festival, 6 other international film festivals.
