Behind the scenes at North Korea’s film academy

| 0 Comentarios

In 2010, Al Jazeera’s 101 East strand gained remarkable access to North Korea’s elite screen academy.

It was where young actors were being trained in how best to extol the communist virtues of their country and their then Dear Leader, Kim Jong-il.

The film was a fascinating insight into the workings of the secretive state’s propaganda industry.

Filmmakers Lynn Lee and James Leong spoke to REWIND about what it was like to be the first foreigners to film inside Pyongyang’s University of Cinematic and Dramatic Arts.
