Dear Pyongyang

Winner at the Sundance Film Festival and Berlinale Film Festival!

New York Premiere. 2006, 107 min., digital video, color. Directed by Yonghi Yang.


At times playful, other times confrontational, Yang questioningly chronicles her father’s devout loyalty to North Korea since emigrating to Japan in the 1950s. Yang reveals exceptional footage of North Korea’s daily life during a trip to visit her brothers, who were all sent there as teenagers. In this deeply personal documentary, Yang reconciles her father’s politics with the love they share as father and daughter.
