 Under the Sun
2015/ Directed by Vitali Mansky
In the undercover documentary 'Under the Sun', the director Vitali Mansky follows an 8-year-old North Korean girl named Jin-mi as she prepares to join the Korean Children's Union, run by the Workers' Party, on the 'Day of the Shining Star' (Kim Jong-Il's birthday). While filming, Mr. Mansky realizes what North Korean regime offers to show him is all fake. The North Korean government cast the film, wrote the script and provided guides to feed the actors their lines and attitude while managing every detail of the project. He then manages to "reveal the true essence of the situation" under the regime by secretly copying a memory card at the end of the day documenting in North Korea. 
Jin-mi comes from an average-but 'exemplary'-family in Pyeongyang, and her family recieves instructions on how to be, or at least appear to be, the ideal patriots. As her mother was 'reassigned' as a worker at a soy-milk plant and her father a senior engineer at a garment factory for the film, Jin-mi strictly follows the make-belive plan.
