Under the Sun

There's journalistic filmmaking, and then there's what Vitaly Mansky does in Under The Sun: a feat of truth-telling so daring that watching it makes you feel like a co-conspirator.

Russian-born, Latvia-based filmmaker Mansky was invited to North Korea to make a documentary about a schoolgirl, Zin-mi, who's about to join the Korean Union for Children and become a fully vested citizen of the DPRK. 

Accompanied constantly by minders, Mansky shot the (scripted) footage he was there to shoot, but also left his cameras running between takes to reveal the fanatical levels of control being exercised over everything we see.

Watching the finished film is a uniquely disturbing experience. It's like someone's opened a window onto an Orwellian universe where lies are truth, freedom is slavery, and dictatorship is the will of the people.

At least when it ends we can return to the real world. Zin-mi and her family are trapped there forever.
