About the Movie

Under the loving but firm guidance of an old fan turned director and cultural diplomat, and to the surprise of the whole world, the ex-Yugoslavian now Slovenian cult band Laibach becomes the first rock group ever to perform in the fortress state of North Korea. Confronting strict ideology and cultural differences, the band struggles to get their songs through the needle's eye of censorship before they can be unleashed on an audience never-before-exposed to alternative rock'n'roll. Meanwhile, propaganda loudspeakers are being set up at the border between the two Koreas and a countdown to war is announced. The hills are alive... with the sound of music.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [Its] withholding, intended to maintain Laibach's mystique, contravenes the ostensible documentary function of the movie. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Oct 18, 2017

Fresh: There's a subtly meaningful power to what the film actually does: witnessing the awkwardness that ensues when the creatively free try to communicate with people who lack the context to understand unfettered expression. – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, Oct 26, 2017

Fresh: Throughout, the documentary wavers between a sincere investigation of the avant-garde music group Laibach and self-satire. – Peter Goldberg, Slant Magazine, Oct 15, 2017

Fresh: Most documentaries or studies of North Korea conclude that it is forever sealed in its own tyranny. For all the absurdity, for all the questionable semi-satire, Laibach actually made contact with North Korea and caused a crack in the wall. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Nov 22, 2016
