Looking for North Koreans France 2012 | 60 min | OV with English subtitles | Colour | FF 2013

rated for 0 + years
For 60 years, the propaganda machinery on the Korean peninsula has been going full pelt. Confused by the distorted pictures offered by both sides, Jero Yun attempts to meet real, live North Koreans so as to be able to compare the prejudices of the South with reality. No easy task, as those Northerners who manage to leave the country mostly end up in the demimonde of the Chinese-North Korean border towns. If they're discovered, deportation back to the realm of Kim Jung-un threatens. An oppressive film essay about invisible exiles.
