Summary
AIM HIGH IN CREATION is a revolutionary comedy about the cinematic genius of North Korea?s late Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il, with a ground breaking experiment at its heart: a propaganda film, made according to the rules of his 1987 Manifesto The Cinema and Directing. Determined to stop a new gas mine near her Sydney home, director Anna Broinowski (Forbidden Lies) goes to North Korea to learn from the masters of propaganda cinema. In a worldwide first, Pyongyang's top directors, composers and movie stars take her to script rehearsals, Taekwondo stunt fights, group dances, drunken picnics, and a film shoot on a real-life captured US spy ship ? to teach her Kim Jong Il's techniques. Back in Sydney, Anna's fearless cast follow the North Koreans' instructions to produce a didactic socialist melodrama, full of song and kick-ass fights, in which “heroic workers” rise up to defeat the “evil, gas-fracking miners.” Through the shared love of cinema, AIM HIGH forges an astonishing new bond ? between North Korea's hidden filmmakers, and their collaborators in the Free World. Revealing an unexpected truth about the most isolated nation on earth: Filmmakers, no matter where they live - are Family
