This edition: A High Level Delegation
(2000/Belgium, 50 minutes, documentary, in French with English subtitles)
A film crew from Strip Tease, the famous satirical monthly of Belgian TV, follows a delegation of seven distinguished parliamentarians, both left and right, on a tour of North Korea, the first allowed in ten years. While the Belgian delegation is investigating the empire of Kim Il Sung and his son, Kim Jong Il, the TV crew investigates the Belgian investigating delegation. The result is a two-faced mirror as the camera reveals both the outrageous behavior of the politicians and the sham of what they are allowed to see.
