Secret State of North Korea (54 min)

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un is the world’s youngest dictator. Like his father and grandfather, he wants to maintain tight control over what North Koreans see of the world, and what the world sees of North Korea. Using footage smuggled from inside and never-before- told stories from defectors living in South Korea, the film offers a rare glimpse at how some North Koreans are defying authority in a country where just being caught with illegal DVDs could mean immediate imprisonment or worse.
