Through unique footage of life in the D.P.R.K. and interviews with ordinary people and scholars, North Korea: Beyond the DMZ opens a window onto this nation and its people while exploring the contentious relationship between North Korea and the United States.

“Brisk, wry and highly enjoyable.... this Third World Newsreel production casts Korea's North-South dynamic in a whole new light.”
