This guy somehow manages to make his way across the North Korean border and films his adventures across the land. Oddities and terror ensue, a very, very interesting watch

Reaction to the first video:

Lives up to its reputation. I've never actually seen a prolonged documentary about inside North Korea. I feel so sorry for that poor woman in that tea house. The lack of cars on the roads is creepy.

Also there's a ton of adverts. Not being American it's a bit of a shock to the system.

Just watched all 14 on youtube.
It was pretty amazing to see all the cultural differences.
It feels like there are many similarities between North Korea and books like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, etc.

Very cool.
Also, part 14 made me laugh :P

Brilliant, thanks for that.

There are a lot of good documentaries on North Korea. I'm oddly fascinated by this terribly depressing country.

Really, really awesome

Am I the only one wondering why he didn't get killed for filming though?

Amazing. I wonder if those N Koreans realize how incredibly odd the way they present themselves is.

and I'm assuming he used a tiny camera and just didn't get caught.

There were guards withhim the whole time (he says)

I don't think these North Koreans aren't gonna notice him filming and talking to the other guy as his camera man all the time

yeah the guards definitely knew they were filming, they mentioned it several times...


i think the idea was to make it so they could only film things that would make NK look good.


just finished it, overall a really good documentary

DUDE. Okay at first I thought to myself, 'wow, that place is surreal.' By the end I was cracking up at how ridiculous that whole giant show was. North Korea is bat shit insane. To the point of going past any seriousness and being simply comical. That's just the only reaction that makes sense to me right now. Obviously the people there sincerely believe through-and-through that they lead normal lives. If it was revealed to them that their entire existence is a pathetic incarnation of an insane man's every whim, they probably wouldn't even care. Okay now that I think about it more, it isn't so funny.

Socialism at its finest. Also, without Kim Jong Il, we'd forget our place in the world, and there'd be more people wearing Che Guevara shirts without understanding the reasoning behind it all.

If I wanted to be a mindless drone working for the heigher up, I would have been born an ant, or a bee, or some dude working slave wages at a cubacle company.

Obviously not man. This is the only life these people ever have and probably will experience. It's so sad.

You gotta also consider that everything on this trip down to the waitresses in the 3 restaurants he visited were all planted there, everything choreographed. It was like a play. It was to show those damn capitalists how great things are here. If what we were showed in this movie seems embarrassingly poor and backward, that was them trying to look rich and prosperous. Imagine how bad thing are for the average N Korean.

Yeah. Life there must be horrible... What a horrible way to live. They're stuck, trapped in a box basically. It shows you how adaptable a human is from birth. You raise them in that and you get people like that. Once their oppression ends I'm sure it'll normal out, so to speak.

Just finished watching it all. It's so depressing. I would love to witness a North Korean refugee's first days outside of North Korea to see the way he/she would react.

Well I was thinking maybe the higher-ups and the escorts would have some kind of clue seeing as how it's their job to interact with westerners. But yeah, they're probably ridiculously brainwashed also.
