A State of Mind (2004) Daniel Gordon, Hyon Sun Pak, Song Yun Kim, Documentary

a-state-of-mind-2004
State of Mind is an eye-opener: In documenting the daily grind of 13-year-old Pak Hyon Sun and 11-year-old Kim Song Yun as they prepare for the yearly Games, Gordon reveals what it’s like to live in North Korea today.

It’s a serene place, far from anything resembling a Team America marionette tableaux or something that’s been forced to don one of George W. Bush’s Axis of Evil imprimaturs, but it still conveys the ghostly feeling of a country set adrift from the rest of the world. Everything transmitted into and out of North Korea is monitored by the Orwellian state and you get a sense that the fanatic anti-Americanism on display (one of the girl’s genteel moms even blames a routine power outage on the Americans) is not just 50-year residual damage from the Korean War but something that’s being systematically spoon-fed to people on a daily basis and by means that aren’t fully known to Gordon. The clincher is an irony that doesn’t escape Gordon: After prepping all year to serve their Dear Leader at the Pyongyang Games, Kim simply fails to show up, and in so doing disappoints his people in the same way Bush II has countlessly failed us. The exception here being that no one in North Korea will ever tell you they’re unhappy with their fascist.
