Aside from the fact this is coming from the DPRK, I feel a lot of what this movie is saying. its 90 mins long and the story behind it is as follows:

Here is the formal statement I gave to Federal Police on 16 June 2012:

On a trip to visit family in Seoul in April, I was approached by a man and a woman who claimed to be North Korean defectors. They presented me with a DVD that recently came into their possession and asked me to translate it. They also asked me to post the completed film on the Internet so that it could reach a worldwide audience. I believed what I was told and an agreement was made to protect their identities (and mine).

Despite my concerns about what I was viewing when I returned home, I proceeded to translate and post the film on You Tube because of the film’s extraordinary content. I have now made public my belief that this film was never intended for a domestic audience in the DPRK. Instead, I believe that these people, who presented themselves as ‘defectors’ specifically targeted me because of my reputation as a translator and interpreter.

Furthermore, I now believe these people work for the DPRK. The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology. I chose to keep posting this film because – regardless of who made it – I believe people should see it because of the issues it raises and I stand by my right to post it for people to share and discuss freely with each other.


I have translated this film, laid in the English voice over and subtitles, and on legal advice have blurred the identity of the presenter and/or blacked out certain elements.

This sounds pretty interesting. Can you give a brief synopsis of the movie for those that don't wish to [or have the time to] watch it all?

Also just so you know, I edited the formatting of your post a little bit and moved it to the correct forum.
DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea).

As an american, it is easy to see how what they are saying is generally true. Things that a lot of Americans agree with, the Bush Administration was a horrible group of individuals that squandered the opportunities of power for personal self interest, are hard to ignore but we don't/can' do anything about it. However, this also has no mention of the good things America has done.

The general theme is Democracy is just a slogan. They talk about how advertisers and big businesses influence government which in turn create vague terms for people to get behind, but don't really turn into anything of significance. "Change We Can Believe In" means what exactly?

Talking about how we are actually slaves to a system where the top 1% feeds us lies and deceit in order to control us into becoming debt slaves, unable to untangle ourselves from it!
