What do we know about the citizens of North Korea? The country seems to be solely inhabited by robotic soldiers and its leader’s hysterically loyal subjects. But what about the everyday life of the people? Award-winning documentary filmmaker Sung-Hyung Cho was the first South Korean director to receive an official permit to film in North Korea. Traveling the country, she accompanies ordinary people during their everyday lives and work routines, talking to them about their hopes and dreams. The resulting film ventures beyond the usual clichés and portrays the country and its people in a unique and respectful way. In German and Korean with English subtitles. 2016. 1h49m.
