9781520048338: Aim High in Creation!: A One-of-a-Kind Journey Inside North Korea's Propaganda Machine

When Anna Broinowski learned that fracking had invaded downtown Sydney, she had a brilliant idea: she would seek guidance for a kryptonite-powerful anti-fracking movie from the world's greatest propaganda factory, apart from Hollywood. After two years of trying, she was allowed to make her case in Pyongyang and was granted full permission to film. She worked closely with the leading lights of North Korean cinema, even playing an American in a military thriller. Interviewing loyalists and defectors alike, Anna explored the society she encountered. She offers vivid, sometimes hilarious descriptions of bizarre disconnects and warm friendships in a world without advertisements or commercial culture. Her book, like the prize-winning documentary that resulted from her visit, is a thoughtful plea for better understanding.

About the Author:

Anna Broinowski fell into filmmaking by accident, unearthing Japanese subcultures in her cult hit Hell Bento!! She's won some shiny things, including three AFI Awards, the Al Jazeera Golden Award, and Best Nonfiction Screenplay from the Writers Guild of America. Before filmmaking, Anna was an actor, rock violinist, writer and law school dropout. She has a PhD from Macquarie University. Anna lives in Sydney with her daughter, a wise Glaswegian, and Tripod, a three-legged cat.

Emma Fenney trained as an actor at Drama Studio London, following a degree in Drama & Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths College, University of London. She currently works as an actor and voice artist and has a particular interest in Shakespeare and classical adaptations.

Review:

"An ingenious method of penetrating the most isolated country in the world allows an Australian filmmaker access to what proves to be a surprisingly sympathetic North Korean soul . . . Startling . . . Experiencing North Korean 'method acting' in the most visceral way." —Kirkus

"The Director is the Commander of the Creative Group. . . . One must Aim High in Creation" —On the Art of the Cinema, Kim Jong Il
