How I Survived the Pyongyang Film Festival

FromMartin Hans Schmitt



A German filmmaker travels to North Korea to participate in the Pyongyang Film Festival. His stereoscopic 3D camera captures the bizarre show presented by the hermit kingdom. Overshadowed by monumental propaganda and the omnipresent leader cult, there are rare glimpses into the lives of the North Koreans. This unique travel report contrasts the overwhelming spectacle with the everyday reality of a totalitarian regime—a satire extending over a whole nation.

Followed by a Q&A with the director Martin Hans Schmitt.
