Prepare for indoctrination or the best piece of propaganda in a generation.

Described as “1984 meets The Blair Witch Project”, “A mouthful of scary porridge”, and “Even better than Triumph of The Will” the documentary is an anti-Western propaganda film about the influences of American visual and consumption culture on the rest of the world from a North Korean perspective.

Presented by an anonymous North Korean professor, the film attacks the moral attenuation, political manipulation and hyper-consumerism that characterize the Western world. In chapters with titles like “Rewriting History,” “Advertising” and “The Cult of Celebrity,” we are treated to a lineup of the most embarrassing occidental excesses and globalization, the “psychological warfare” at the hands of multinationals, shopping-obsessed consumers and the failure of democracy.
