Abstract impressionist diplomacy

While North Korea is in the process of conducting nuclear missile tests, a group of contemporary artists travel to Pyongyang to take part in a cultural exchange programme with colleagues from a nation that has outlawed abstract art. Can they succeed in creating ties between the notoriously closed-off country and the outside world where conventional diplomacy has failed? As confusion and misunderstandings abound, we are treated to a unique glimpse of life in North Korea – untainted by the propaganda of Kim Jong-un’s state-controlled media and its Western counterparts.
