Challenging reality. A retrospective of Vitaly Mansky

Under the Sun Vitaly Mansky

V luchakh solntsa

In this staggering film, Vitaly Mansky follows a script provided by the North Korean authorities and to the letter; they intend to control all stages of production – from artistic direction to staging – with their infamous inflexibility. And yet, with considerable cunning and a great deal of skill, the filmmaker manages to deconstruct the authoritarian state’s propaganda system. The impressive feat is made possible by the fact that a large part of a documentary’s writing happens during editing. (Programming Collective)
