I AM SUN MU
2015, 86 min, Dir: Adam Sjöberg

“No boundaries” are the watchwords for painter Sun Mu, a former North Korean propaganda artist who defected to the south in the 1990s, and the focus of this striking documentary. Now employing the Socialist Realist style for satirical purposes, Sun Mu targets the repressive regime of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un – a potentially dangerous subject as he prepares for a solo exhibition in China. “The film is evidence of his courage as well as the limits to his hard-won freedom, and sheds a sharp light on the lengths to which tyranny will go in order to maintain its monolithic façade.” - Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter. In Korean, Chinese and English with English subtitles.


Screening format: DCP | Tickets: $15. No passes.
