DPRK: The Land Of Whispers (North Korea Travel Documentary) (2013)

46
40



North Korea lies somewhere between a 1930′s Soviet Union frozen in time and a dark, futuristic vision of society… as imagined back in the 70′s.

“Land of Whispers” invites you to visit arguably the most unique and isolated travel destination in the world – not to criticize, but to observe and listen. Aside from usual highlights such as Pyongyang or Arirang, this unique one-man documentary brings you to areas such as Chongjin or Wonson, still virtually unknown to even google or wikipedia. There, I attempt to pierce through the ever-present ‘national mythology’ and as much as possible, I try to connect with people – such as the waitress mesmerized by tablet computers, or a tour guide cautiously fascinated by modern pop culture.

*** Some individuals directly connected with the North Korean government have been working to have this film removed from YT and other web sites – first via ambiguous, threatening emails, later through baseless demands and now by flagging the film online for arbitrary, unfounded reasons. I want to assure everyone that I have completed this film with great ethical concern, full transparency and as much as possible in communication with parties who may have been affected by the film. I was not undercover, I was truthful about everything I did every step of the way. YT: I have all proper documentation. I’m doing all my best to keep the film up. If they succeed in shutting it down, i will do my best to re-upload along with a list of alternative web sites where you can see it. ***

  1. I have recently read several books on North Korea and viewed many utube films. I find the whole concept of North Korea utterly fascinating but I must say that your film is by far the best of all. You are an excellent film maker and your edit was far superior than that of BBC, RT corporations who obviously operate on vast budgets and for that you should in all sincereity be proud!

  2. OK…. AS A FREE SPIRITED AMERICAN LEFTOVER FROM THE 1960S & 70S THIS TRULY TOUCHED ME. VERY WELL DONE , AND INFORMATIVE YET PERSONAL . YOU ACTUALLY REACHED OUT FROM OUR MODERN ROCK-N-ROLL WORLD TO THIS LOST AND FORBIDDEN PEOPLE…. WELL DONE……. PEACE TO THE WORLD , HIPPY BOY.

  3. Ugh I just wanna show these people real love, bring food, music, party, to hell with war , we want peace!! I feel so bad to know they're suffering,especially children

  4. When i look at those people living that way. It makes me so sorry… imagine being born there end dying there. Then your entire life is a jokr.

  5. North Korea has new superb and highly advanced drugs against the corona virus: KUMDANG 2 and ROYAL BLOOD FRESH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kURx8aGSQsQ

  6. so it's 2020, and you mentioned youd be back and try your luck on 5th floor.. im sure by now you know how blessed you are to have just walked away when you got caught after learning what happened to "wonbierr"

  7. It seems like they're convinced that we buy into what they're saying and showing us in these tours, and I find that almost more shocking than the tyranny and cruelty within the country. I mean, how gullible do you have to be to believe any of that shit as a foreigner? Especially when you come for visit and are constantly told what you can or can't do.

  8. Just like anywhere else, NK is a country with such talented and gifted children who will, unfortunately, never get to reach their full potential.

  9. Population are brainwashed,we get to a certain age where we realize Santa Claus isnt real,on the other hand many believe in Jesus Christ there whole life,gotta feel sorry for them however they dont know they are suffering hopefully.

  10. Better be glad you failed at getting on the 5th floor! Otto Warmbier went there and we know what happened to him.

  11. It’s like a country being run by fucking kids!! Imagine my son running a country….”I want everyone to say good things about me and praise me everyday or die”! Lol

  12. The people of North Korea could have had so much to give yet they are totally suppressed. North Korea should be taken over by South Korea.

  13. Why is so much hate against North Korea? Why don't the Western countries leave North Korea alone? Why is so much propaganda against this country.? We all know there is ideological differences. North Korea is communist country the but Western countries are Imperialists and capitalist countries that is it. Western countries often used defaming language propaganda against North Korea and its leaders. North Korea at the same time feel bullied and threatened by it. No one said about the Saudis, Turkey, UAE, Egypt, Israel, Bahrain and flexing there muscles on their people and on their own neighbors.

  14. I really hope Jim is okay, he seems like such a sweet man, trying his best to live a good life in such a constrictive country.

  15. Also to all of you you want to shit all over this guy and say that he's perpetuating a propaganda piece so you can screw off you get what you put out he was respectful so he was respected plain and simple if you act sneaky you're going to get treated like you're being sneaky

  16. You know I watched many North Korea videos and yours is by far the absolute best also to all of you who go over and you don't get treated the same way this guy gets treated perhaps is because you acting shady and he never did. You're treated the way you put yourself out if you pour yourself out like you're trying to be sneaky they're going to treat you like you're being sneaky

  17. The point he shooed you like a gnat… I felt great, FREEDOM LOVING HUMANS, THE GNAT IN THE TROUSERS OF TYRANTS EVERYWHERE! NEVER COMPROMISE ! FREEDOM FOR ALL!
