One of the most unusual aspects of North Korea (one of the world's most unusual countries) is its rather remarkable movie industry. But like so many things about North Korea, very little is known about its cinema.
Fortunately, Johannes Schoenherr has started a series of stories in the Daily NK about North Korean movies. Johannes was screening movies in Germany back in the 1990s when he got to know the North Korean diplomats there, and then they invited him to North Korea. He has posted three stories so far, outlining his experiences there, with many more to come. It promises to be quite a fun series, check it out.
