Aroview: With ambitions to stop a new gas mine from being established near her Sydney home, director Anna Broinowski (FORBIDDEN LIES) goes to North Korea to learn methods on how to make a propaganda film.

With unprecedented access, she enlists Pyongyang’s top directors, composers and movie stars to teach her the techniques implemented by the late Kim Jong Il, and finds them surprisingly generous hosts. The resulting documentary is a peculiar mix of satire, art experiment and earnest agitprop, but entirely valid and unique as a study of both socialist and capitalist propaganda.
