Storyline

Under the loving but firm guidance of an old fan turned director and cultural diplomat and to the surprise of a whole world, the ex-Yugoslavian cult band Laibach becomes the first foreign rock group ever to perform in the fortress state of North Korea. Confronting strict ideology and cultural differences, the band struggles to get their songs through the needle's eye of censorship before they can be unleashed on an audience never before exposed to alternative rock'n'roll. Meanwhile, propaganda loudspeakers are being set up at the border between the two Koreas and a countdown to war is announced. The hills are alive...with the sound of music.

Outstanding Achievement
4 November 2017 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

My first introduction to Laibach was through my older brother, it was in the year 2004. We came together to their concert and i was totally blown away, i was at the same time very scared and amazed. After that time i watched them 4 more times, and they were always different and unique, you really don't know what to expect from them, so they shocked the whole western "democratic" world when they played live in North Korea in 2015. I really somehow expected them to play one day in the most closed country in the world. And after 2 years we now have the documentary about that amazing achievement. These documentary is fantastically directed by Norwegian Morten Traavik, the man who organized Laibach's performance in Pyongyang. These documentary is not just about the Laibach concert and things happening behind the curtain. It is about people, about country we don't know so much. We can also see that people there are living in real communist utopia, hate it or not, but they are looking happy, maybe they are brainwashed but you cannot denied that they somehow reached the goals of communist utopia, but the most amazing thing of documentary is that you see that all people are somehow similar, when time passed people from band and local people get more connected and open to each other. You can see at the end of documentary, the audience was cold and scared at the beginning but at the end Laibach gets big applause and people smiled, Laibach succeeded and liberated local people from their prejudices and fears. This is the must watch not only for the fans of Laibach but for all open minded people. My grade 9/10.
