Una gloriosa delegazione a Pyongyang (A glorious delegation to Pyongyang)
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY FILM
April 25, 2018 four friends set off for North Korea with plans to testify, above and beyond ideological conditioning or prejudice, the life of the most enigmatic and denigrated country in the world. A cinema crew follows them, the only one authorized to shoot a film in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which in that particular moment, finds itself living in the excitement of the historical encounter of the two presidents, North and South, to discuss the unification of Korea...
...their journey ends on May 1st in Beijing, where the four friends decide to ask the Chinese what they think about Socialism and Karl Marx.
Four friends set off on a journey to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to accompany one of them, Davide Rossi, essayist, journalist, teacher and member of the Communist Party (Switzerland). Davide who has received an invitation from the Central Committee of the Worker's Party in Pyongyang, will bring as a gift to the Koreans his latest book, entitled: “The Present-day Relevancy of Marx.”
I was keen on verifying all the offensive and grotesque things said, written and filmed regarding the People's Republic of Korea in order to ascertain the truth. This convinced me to make this film, which, beyond political credos and ideological conditioning, proposes to confront and compare the reflections of four friends about a way of life.
The whole story interacts with the backstage of the crew shooting the film, following the typical style of a narration that present the reality of the facts as they happen in the progress of this particular journey, leaving to the viewer the considerations and the choice of deciding what to think about what he's seeing.
