UNDER THE SUN

Vitaly Mansky, 2016

This new documentary follows the daily routines of little Zin-mi and her family up to her ceremonious initiation into the Children's Union. The DPRK agreed to let Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky make the film with strict state supervision of the script. Incorporating smuggled footage recorded between takes, Mansky's film recasts a work of would-be North Korean propaganda into a damning exposé of the state's laughable attempts to stage prosperity and happiness.
