Family, State

<p>TRAILER – Dear Pyongyang from TypecastReleasing on Vimeo.</p>

I don’t think think this trailer really does DEAR PYONGYANG justice, but I wanted to post it before I forgot. New School Media Studies alum Yonghi Yang designed a fascinating piece about the troubling choices of her family, North Korean stalwarts living in Japan who send their sons back to the totalitarian state and realize too late the dangerous impact of their decisions. It’s made all the more bittersweet by the contradictory character of her father, a charming effervescent man who nonetheless supports what amounts to the exile of his own sons.
