Focus Years: 2003 | Country: France
North Korea continues to be described as a hermetically closed, paranoid, unpredictable country. Its great Leader, Kim Jong Il, son of Kim Il Sung, goes on living happily in the only communist dynasty left. After India, Israel, Pakistan and Iran, a new atomic power is seriously baring its teeth. Our documentary aims at shedding light on a the real stakes of an uneasily decipherable crisis, even for experts on the situation. A crisis in the region that President Clinton once called "the most dangerous place in the world". The film will highlight the current context, the relations, tensions and dangers between both Koreas, but also the U.S., China, Russia and Japan.
