Juche Strong -- A documentary about the North Korean propaganda apparatus.


This article is a plea for funding to get the documentary released.  From the short you tube trailer and the explanation of the documentary this looks like it may have some value.  I am especially interested in hearing the description of the psychological impacts of north Korean propaganda.  We do need to understand the impact of north Korean propaganda on its people because the ROK/US Alliance is going to have to deal with the people and the way they have been indoctrinated and work slowly to overcome six plus decades of same.

The intro and trailer are on YouTube at the link below.

How?

This film explodes the most pernicious misconceptions of North Korea and argues that the propaganda-fueled national ideology has played an integral role in keeping the country together.
