SONGS FROM THE NORTH

DIRECTOR: Soon-Mi Yoo - SOUTH KOREA

An intimate essay, Songs from the North provides a deep look at the enigma of North Korea. Bypassing and decoding the country’s jingoistic propaganda, as well as derisive satire from the West, Soon-Mi Yoo interweaves footage from three visits to North Korea with songs, spectacle, popular cinema, and archival footage to understand, on their own terms, the psychology and popular imagery of the North Korean people and the political ideology of absolute love. “Rare and extraordinary… profoundly strange, immediate, and real.”–The Village Voice. Best First Feature at both the Locarno International Film Festival and Bueos Aires International Festival. (75 mins.)

Filmography: Far from Afghanistan (2012)



Interests: Documentary Views.
