Ein „nordkoreanischer Propagandafilm“

Slavko Martinov dreht eine konsum-, kapitalismus- und demokratiekritische Dokumentation, tarnt diese als nordkoreanischen Propagandafilm, lädt diesen bei YouTube hoch, schafft eine Story rund um die Entstehung und setzt uns eigentlich nur einen Spiegel vor.

Presented by an anonymous North Korean professor, this anti-Western propaganda film attacks the moral attenuation, political manipulation and hyper-consumerism that characterize the Western world. In chapters with titles like “Rewriting History,” “Advertising” and “The Cult of Celebrity,” we are treated to a lineup of the most embarrassing occidental excesses and globalization, the “psychological warfare” at the hands of multinationals, shopping-obsessed consumers and the failure of democracy. Then there’s time for the “Grab it!” culture of the one percent and additional moral deterioration in the form of Paris Hilton, unethical TV shows and violent movies and games. Toward the end of this propaganda piece, the role of North Korea in all of this becomes clear: the country would like to offer itself as headquarters for the mounting fight against consumer slavery and greed worldwide.
