“Interweaving footage from my three visits to North Korea, together with songs, spectacle, popular cinema and archival footage, Songs from the North tries to understand, on their own terms, the psychology and popular imaginary of the North Korean people and the political ideology of absolute love, which continues to drive the nation towards its uncertain future.” Soon-Mi Yoo
