Nine North Korean films are being publically screened in South Korea for the first time.

They are part of the 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN 2018) after its organisers applied for a special permit to screen them.

North Korean movies are classified as “special data” in South Korea, which means that to screen those films, a South Korean cinema-owner needs prior approval from the government.

The films provide a rare glimpse into daily life in the isolated nation and Koreans hope that showing them will contributing to the improving ties between the nations.

Seems like NK is sending propaganda vids to the South? They and Jazeera are biting hook, line and sinker.

How can someone be North- Korean Japanese and still be able to go to NK freely?
