Behind the iron curtain of North Korea’s dictatorship lies a nation shrouded in secrecy and mystery. Little is known about daily life in the country, where citizens are forced to worship their dictator, Kim Jong Un, as a god-like father figure. But for journalist Luca Faccio, a rare opportunity presents itself – the chance to venture inside the world’s last Iron Curtain, and experience a very different country to the one we know only through carefully curated images of rocket launches and mass rallies.

As he steps inside the secretive nation, Faccio is closely followed by government watchdogs, but despite the constant surveillance, he manages to offer fascinating insights into life behind the veil of censorship. He discovers a world of enforced conformity, starvation and oppression, but also observes the resilience and strength of the people living under such circumstances. For those curious about a land that remains largely unexplored by outsiders, this upcoming documentary film promises to captivate and inform, shedding light on a country that has been hidden from view for too long.
