About this Item

Title

  • Kim Jong-il and North Korean Films

Summary

  • Suk-Young Kim, a fellow at the John W. Kluge Center, Library of Congress, presents a program that provides insight on North Korean culture, politics and the leadership of Kim Jong-il titled "Kim Jong-il and North Korean Film." The world's understanding of Kim Jong-il is often linked to his personal obsession with film, but little is known about how and why film serves as a window through which the outside world can glimpse the enigmatic North Korean leader. The talk explores Kim Jong-il's relationship with film on various levels, such as the filial duty to protect his father's legacy and desire to gain political capital through artistic achievement on both domestic and international fronts. Rarely seen film clips???selected from a wide variety of genres, such as political propaganda, family melodrama, musical, children's animation and Hong Kong-style martial arts films??? are shown.
