North Korean Propaganda

The event I attended in Washington DC, discussed North Korea Propaganda. They first showed a documentary on North Korea and showed citizens from North and South Korea and also had American commentators. The film showed the streets of North Korea and the different types of Propaganda present in North Korea. After the film was over the director had a question and answer session, where he answered a variety of different questions from the audience. It was very interesting to see North Korea and to understand that the citizens have always been surrounded by this propaganda and is the only thing they know. I learned that North Korean citizens are really isolated from the outside world meaning that they are only told and shown what the leaders want them to know.
