  • Extraordinary… the strangest north korean tale yet
    The Guardian
    Funny, thoughtful, knowingly absurd

    North Korea remains one of the great enemies of the West. Nonetheless, Laibach accepted an invitation
    to play a concert on Korean Liberation Day. The film follows the band members between their arrival in North Korea and the show. The preparations are obstructed by technical difficulties, cultural differences and constant censorship.
