North Korea lies somewhere between a 1930′s Soviet Union frozen in time and a dark, futuristic vision of society... as imagined back in the 70′s. "Land of Whispers" invites you to visit arguably the most unique and isolated travel destination in the world - not to criticize, but to observe and listen. Aside from usual highlights such as Pyongyang or Arirang, this unique one-man documentary brings you to areas such as Chongjin or Wonson, still virtually unknown to even google or wikipedia. There, I attempt to pierce through the ever-present 'national mythology' and as much as possible, I try to connect with people - such as the waitress mesmerized by tablet computers, or a tour guide cautiously fascinated by modern pop culture. * Third World Indie Film Festival 2013 (San Francisco, USA) / Best Feature Documentary * * Utopia Film Festival 2013 (Greenbelt, USA) / Official Selection * * Global Peace Film Festival 2013 (Orlando, FL, USA) / Official Selection * * Jayu: The North Korean Human Rights Film Festival 2013 (Canada) / Official Selection * --------------------------- KHAU VAI LOVE MARKET - A feature film about Ethnic Minority love in the remote, Vietnamese mountains.

Disturbingly accurate description of U.S. actions and lifestyle through the lens of North Korean government propaganda. DPRK propaganda on USA propaganda. Almost hilarious. I do not necessarily personally agree with some of the views presented in this video. However, I do personally agree with some of the views presented in this video. I own none of this footage. I do not have access to the completed work material this footage originated from. This footage may not be presented in its original form as a result.

We went to break down barriers that separate us from the human beings that we all are. We did not plan to make a music video beforehand. It was not staged or in any way funded by the DPRK government. Our intent with this video is to show what we experienced as a true collaboration, with the hope that somehow it can lead to a positive change and be a voice for the people of North Korea. We made it with our new friends. We believe that what we experienced and the making of this video are positive signs that these barriers were at least to some extent, broken down during our time there. We are all making history together by pushing the boundaries of what's possible and what's never been done before, from the music video to the promotion of unification in the midst of division.

========================================== Following are ten Myths that the Imperialist West lie about the DPRK. However, the truth is very different. Watch this video to learn the truth! : 1) “North Koreans are fearful of contact with foreigners (because they may just end up in a prison camp).” 2) “Pyongyang the capital of North Korea is a showcase city prohibited to cyclists, pregnant women, the elderly, mentally-ill and disabled.” 3) “North Koreans endure very austere lives.” 4) “Ordinary North Koreans are not allowed to travel abroad.” 5) “North Korea is a chauvinistic, male-dominated society” 6) “North Korea’s economy is moribund.” 7) “North Korea is famine-stricken” and “the North Korean countryside is stripped bare of vegetation (it has all been consumed by starving peasants).” 8) “North Koreans are demoralised.” 9) “Refugess are fleeing North Korea” 10) “Human rights abuses in North Korea” ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Join the Fight against the dis-information of Imperialist Propaganda! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Original Source: (https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1208540385904721&id=223522167739886) DPRK Official Website: (http://www.korea-dpr.com/) "Long Live the DPRK" Google+: (https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105565643278239564985/105565643278239564985) Korean Friendship Association (KFA) Website: (http://www.kfausa.org/) KFA Forums: (http://kfausa.freeforums.net/) ==========================================

On our second day, we visited the north of North Korea. We went to the International Friendship Exhibition, an old Buddhist temple, the Hyangsan Hotel, a secondary school and a local restaurant. Plus, lots of bus ride and filming! If you have any questions regarding my trip, don't hesitate to ask.
© Korean Central Television A test-fire of new ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 was successfully carried out on Sunday by scientists and technicians in the field of rocket research, who are bravely advancing toward a new goal to be proud of in the world, true to the far-sighted idea of Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, for building a nuclear power. Kim Jong Un guided the test-fire on the spot. Looking at Hwasong-12, he expressed his satisfaction over the possession of another "Juche weapon", a perfect weapon system congruous with the military strategic and tactical idea of the WPK and the demand of the present times. The test-fire was conducted at the highest angle in consideration of the security of neighboring countries. The test-fire aimed at verifying the tactical and technological specifications of the newly-developed ballistic rocket capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead. According to the order of Kim Jong Un, the new rocket Hwasong-12 was launched at 04:58 on Sunday. The rocket accurately hit the targeted open waters 787km away after flying to the maximum altitude of 2 111.5km along its planned flight orbit. The test-fire proved to the full all the technical specifications of the rocket, which was newly designed in a Korean-style by defence scientists and technicians, like guidance and stabilization systems, structural system and pressurization, inspection and launching systems and reconfirmed the reliability of new rocket engine under the practical flight circumstances. It also verified the homing feature of the warhead under the worst re-entry situation and accurate performance of detonation system. Kim Jong Un hugged officials in the field of rocket research, saying that they worked hard to achieve a great thing. And he had a picture taken with officials, scientists and technicians who took part in the test-fire. Highly appreciating again their devotion for manufacturing the Korean-style medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket, he gave a special thanks to them on behalf of himself. He said with confidence that the successful test-fire of Hwasong-12, a demonstration of high-level defence science and technology of the DPRK, is of great and special significance for securing peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region and is the greatest victory of the Korean people. He declared that the DPRK is a nuclear power worthy of the name whether someone recognizes it or not. He stressed the DPRK will keep strict control over those engaging themselves in nuclear blackmail with its nuclear deterrence which has been unimaginably and rapidly developed. The U.S. massively brought nuclear strategic assets to the vicinity of the Korean peninsula to threaten and blackmail the DPRK, but the coward American-style fanfaronade militarily browbeating only weak countries and nations which have no nukes can never work on the DPRK and is highly ridiculous, he said, stressing that if the U.S. dares opt for a military provocation against the DPRK, we are ready to counter it. The most perfect weapon systems in the world will never become the eternal exclusive property of the U.S., he said, expressing the belief that the day when the DPRK uses the similar retaliatory means will come. He continued that on this occasion, the U.S. had better see clearly whether the ballistic rockets of the DPRK pose actual threat to it or not. If the U.S. awkwardly attempts to provoke the DPRK, it will not escape from the biggest disaster in the history, he said, strongly warning the U.S. not to disregard or misjudge the reality that its mainland and Pacific operation region are in the DPRK's sighting range for strike and that it has all powerful means for retaliatory strike. He gave the scientists and technicians in the field of rocket research the order to continuously develop more precise and diversified nukes and nuclear striking means, not content with the successes, and make preparations for more tests till the U.S. and its vassal forces make a proper choice with reason.
