Synopsis

Despite continuous interference by government handlers, director Vitaly Mansky still manages to document life in Pyongyang, capital city of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, in this fascinating portrait of one girl and her parents in the year that Zin-mi prepares to join the Korean Children’s Union on the ‘Day Of The Shining Star’. As the family receives instruction on how to be the ideal patriots, Mansky’s watchful camera captures details his handlers might prefer left unseen, from comrades struggling to stay awake during an official event to Zin-mi’s tears at a particularly grueling dance lesson.

2016 - Awards Season: Independent Spirit Awards - Nominations

November 23rd, 2016

Moonlight

The Independent Spirit Awards nominations were announced last night and thus the 2016 Awards Season begins. There were a few surprises and some snubs to discuss, but for the most part, there’s not a lot nominations that broke the established narrative.
