War of Art

Tommy Gulliksen. 2019 – Norway/Germany.

102 minutes. English with Spanish subtitles.

 

While the world is threatened by a nuclear war, a group of contemporary Western artists are invited into the eye of the storm: North Korea. This cast of colorful characters invades the notoriously secretive and gloomy country in search of a peaceful cultural exchange, yet their project may well turn into an Art War.  Norwegian director Tommy Gulliksen went into North Korea with 7 contemporary artists and a curator, managing to shoot the documentary despite the strict control of the regime’s officials.
