Red Tape And Comedy In North Korea
SBS  |  April 26, 2011

A Danish-Korean theatre troupe of two comedians and their manager travel to North Korea on the pretext of wanting to perform vaudeville comedy. In actuality they are there to make a guerrilla-style expose of the ruthless police state. Constantly shadowed by a guide, they rehearse under the watchful eye of government officials brought in to 'collaborate' on their performance. But as the hoax plays out, the two comedians (both of North Korean descent) begin to emotionally unravel.
