US PREMIERE Sometimes you come across a documentary whose the description you have to reread just to make sure it’s all real. Mads Brügger’s latest sounds latest sounds like a John le Carré novel—but this is a true story of a multinational geopolitical plot dotted with greed, impostors, drugs, and weapons. Filmed in secrecy for over 10 years, Brügger’s suspenseful exposé keeps the viewers on their toes as it uncovers the dangerous, insidious ways in which the North Korean empire functions. – Bedatri Choudhury

The November 13th screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Mads Brügger.
