One world festival films: The Red Chapel
Tuesday 15. May 2012, 7pm
A journalist with no barriers, a man suffering from pulsy and a comedian travel together to North Korea with the aim to provoke laughter in conditions of one of the harshest regimes. Under the excuse of being a small theatre group from Denmark on an exchange, the Red Chapel was granted permission to enter in order to perform on various special events for selected viewers. The group actually didn´t have such straightforward goal. Two of its members, when children, were adopted from North Korea, and this is a story of their confrontation with their native roots. A story of free mind meeting an utterly controlled society. 23 millions of North Korean citizens were, until recently, controlled by an iron fist of “Dear leader”, general Kim Jong-il (now deceased).
