Review: ‘Men on Boats’ Blurs Genders in Recalling John Wesley Powell’s Expedition -

Film Forum · UNDER THE SUN

Despite continuous interference by government handlers, director Vitaly Mansky still manages to document life in Pyongyang, capital city of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, in this fascinating portrait of one girl and her parents in the year that Zin-mi prepares to join the Korean Children's Union on the 'Day Of The Shining Star' (Kim Jong-Il's birthday). As the family receives instruction on how to be the ideal patriots, Mansky's watchful camera captures details his handlers might prefer left unseen, from comrades struggling to stay awake during an official event to Zin-mi's tears at a particularly grueling dance lesson.
