A revealing film about a ‘real life’ family in North Korea.

A fascinating glimpse behind the strict façade of the North Korean regime as director Vitaly Mansky makes a film about an ordinary family in Pyongyang, his crew accompanied at all times and what they are supposed to film always carefully orchestrated. But he cleverly keeps the film rolling, picking up rehearsals and fine-tuning by authorities, and featuring telling moments as eight year-old schoolgirl Zin-Mi delivers her lines beautifully but is also caught crying quietly at the pressure of the whole propaganda operation.
