Sung-Hyung Cho is the first South Korean filmmaker to gain access to North Korea. Setting aside her pre-conceptions of her neighbours to the North, she explores the reality of daily life under the totalitarian regime.
She accompanies ordinary people in their life and work routines and learns about their hopes and dreams for their nation. My Brothers and Sisters in the North moves beyond the stereotypical images of robotic soldiers and hysterically loyal citizens to give a unique and fascinating window into the enigmatic world of North Korea.
