The Great North Korean Picture Show
For the very first time, foreign film makers have been allowed inside North Korea's only film school. We're introduced to two young actors, both of whom have been singled out to become the stars of tomorrow. Meanwhile, a director is working around the clock, with hundreds of extras in tow, to create the regime's new blockbuster. Will he succeed in pleasing the leadership and captivating audiences? THE GREAT NORTH KOREAN PICTURE SHOW allows the images to speak for themselves, and it is up to the audience to distinguish between truth and propaganda.
