Posted: 01 Apr 2010Experimental filmmaker Jim Finn's "'The Juche Idea' centers on Yoon (played by Jung Yoon Lee), a South Korean artist who has been invited to — or perhaps detained at — a North Korean artists’ residence. When not performing her farm duties, she makes 'insect-based bio-art' (including what the credits term a 'Kim Jong-il flyface sculpture') and strives to find the politically correct pitch for video pieces like 'The Dentures of Imperialism.' Yoon’s videos — the result of Mr. Finn simultaneously adhering to and parodying juche thought — combine annotated clips from actual North Korean propaganda with what he described as the American equivalent: Voice of America 'slow English' broadcasts valorizing Ronald Reagan."
