Under the Sun

Under the Sun
A slightly older documentary about North Korea so some of you have probably seen it by now but for those who haven't, it differs from a lot of the other documentaries out there because it features unapproved footage.

I'll PM a link to anyone interested.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_the_Sun_(2015_film)

Quote:The film follows a year in the life of a family in Pyongyang, North Korea as their daughter Zin-mi prepares to join the Korean Children's Union on the Day of the Shining Star (Kim Jong-il's birthday).

The film opens with the words, "The script of this film was assigned to us by the North Korean side. They also kindly provided us with an around-the-clock escort service, chose our filming locations and looked over all the footage we shot to make sure we did not make any mistakes in showing the life of a perfectly ordinary family in the best country in the world."

I find them interesting, but I also understand why they aren't everybody's cup of tea, so to speak.

Let's just hope the North Korean regime collapses.

Will your hopes ease the suffering of those asians or shorten the lifespan of tyranny there?

I watch depressing films and listen to depressing music because they cheer me up. Why aren't you normal like me?

I'd watch this one with you, Bella.

You both should just look in the mirror, you will cheer up instantly.

I can't vouch for this, but supposedly this is a picture of 2 NK border guards . . .

If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.
