Patrik Wallner, the creator of this video, gives the world a glimpse into the dictatorship through coverage of the birthday celebrations of Kim Il-sung. Flying to Pyongyang for two days, he was lucky to be able to take part in the event.

A stunning uncovering of the country, the quality and color of the video are as bold as the love citizens exhibit for their passed leader. The birthday celebration of Kim Il-sung is grand and seemingly wide-reaching event. It takes a critical eye to size up the dynamics of a country secluded as such based on this short insight. Patrik Wallner does a fantastic job of portraying one of the most alien corners of the world.
