Summary
PYONGYANG DIARIES is director Solrun Hoaas' personal account of her encounter with the closed society of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. While the official line in North Korea fosters an almost religious cult of personality, with an emphasis on uniformity, nationalism, and a sense of self-reliance, Hoaas' observations, conversations, and diary entries belie underlying contradictions and inconsistencies. "...a rare and unusual glimpse into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea .. The film stands virtually alone.... in its balanced, non-ideological and humane attempt to get 'inside' the DPRK and show some of the contradiction, complexity, and diversity of life in today's North Korea." - Charles Armstrong, Asian Educational Media Service (AEMS) Magazine.
