Under the Sun

Special Premiere Screening!

(2015) dir Vitaliy Manskiy w/Lee Zin-Mi [106 min; DCP]
ahtd-290A fascinating portrait of one North Korean girl and her parents in the year as she prepares to join the Korean Children’s Union on Kim Jong-Il’s birthday. Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky negotiated for a decade to gain access to the country and, though he gave authorities complete control over his script, his handlers had no idea that he left his cameras rolling at all times, capturing the surreal, true face of life under the notoriously rigid regime.

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick “The movie raises disquieting questions, including a few that Mr. Mansky might not have meant to.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“There’s a terrible wonder in this rare glimpse inside a country that has tried to empty itself of all thought, all commerce and all civil society — of pretty much everything except an especially lame version of hero worship and despotism.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
