Reading Group Recommends: Life in North Korea

Our regular, monthly reading group meetings are currently on hold due to Covid 19. Until we’ll be able to meet again, we’ll switch from books to films and recommend documentaries relevant to anarchists.

With North Korea recently being in the news again, it’s easy to forget that this demonised country has actual people living in it, suffering from a dictatorship and trying to live their everyday lives.

It’s rare to find images and interviews from North Korea without either capitalist sensationalising or USSR nostalgia, but this documentary shows the lives and living conditions of North Koreans, respectfully focussing on their circumstances, (almost) without using them for the documentary makers’ own agenda or propaganda:

For an anarchist history of Korea, have a look at:
