Russian Documentary “Under the Sun” - Life in North Korea

Film screening and a talk by director Vitaly Mansky

October 25 at 6:00 p.m. in the International Cultural Center Auditorium

Russian Documentary

Vitaly Mansky received permission to make a documentary film about the life of a young girl in North Korea. North Korean authorities attempted to control the filming, but Mansky and his crew were able to take footage that was not subject to censorship. This film offers a unique glimpse at life in North Korea, as well as the authorities' attempts to control the way the country is portrayed. There will be a question and answer session with Mr. Mansky after the screening.
