Critic Reviews for Songs From The North
Scattering history lessons and ambiguous imagery amid Ms. Yoo's engagement with North Koreans, her film implicitly asks: What must they think of us?
The fact that Yoo isn't regarded as an outsider by the people she's recording allows her to capture a number of revealing, unrehearsed moments that startle in their raw emotion.
An empathetic snapshot of a country that is almost never depicted in such an accessible light.
While in no way softening the all-encompassing propaganda state of three generations of Great Leader Kims, Songs from the North also displays a rare audacity by showing certain aspects of North Korean life as perfectly normal.
Yoo's film is a necessary correction of how we should view or think about what life is really like in North Korea, even if the work feels somewhat limited by its own necessity.
