North Korea's Millennial Generation is shaking things up in the hermit kingdom. They grew up relying on themselves, not the regime, and they have a completely different mindset from the previous generation.

Featuring hidden camera footage from inside North Korea, coupled with firsthand experiences told by eight North Korean defectors, this film is about resilience, creativity, and a quiet rebellion that is growing even in the most difficult of circumstances.

 

Enjoy this screener of the film. No further distribution, please.

Quotes


 

"THE JANGMADANG GENERATION IS THE MOST COMPELLING DOCUMENTARY ABOUT NORTH KOREA OUT THERE. THROUGH THE STORIES OF YOUNG NORTH KOREANS WHO'VE LIVED IT AND ESCAPED IT, WE LEARN ABOUT THE PROFOUND, UNSEEN CHANGES THAT ARE TAKING PLACE INSIDE THIS MOST IMPENETRABLE OF COUNTRIES. IT ALSO ACHIEVES THE RAREST OF FEATS WHEN IT COMES TO COVERAGE OF NORTH KOREA: IT LEAVES YOU FEELING HOPEFUL."

"The markets are entrenched now, and you can get your hands on anything there."

 

"We grew up learning about and seeing freedom while being repressed by the government at the same time. 

So our desire for freedom is so strong."
