I Love Docs

Himel takes an unprecedented tour of hospitals and schools that lack the fundamental basics to provide health care and education and meets a man who escaped from the Gulag to South Korea. The documentary features candid interviews with doctors, teachers, principals and students who talk openly about the terrible problems. The documentary also takes a rare look into the arts and discovers a much more human side of North Korean life. But is North Korea changing out of desperation or deception? While burdened economically, its Gulag prison camps still flourish. It is also arming with nuclear weapons.
Wow, I am impressed that this level of access was afforded the crew. Jolly good show.
