Documentary: 10 Days in North Korea

Welcome to North Korea where you have to follow your guide’s instructions and only take pictures of what we say. To some the people are repressed, though they prefer to describe themselves as "protected," at least on camera. Life here is the result of a unique 70-year social experiment in which the people are "shielded" from the "corrupting influence" of the outside world. Dynastic leader Marshal Kim Jong-un, who inherited the job from his father and grandfather, continues their political heritage. An RTD film crew was granted rare access to this unique country, which may seem to have leapt from the pages of a dystopian novel, to see what life is really like and what the people really think of their homeland and its leader.
