following the screening of THE MOLE, dir. Mads Brügger
English with a Polish interpreter
Festivalgoers are very familiar with Danish director Mads Brügger ("Cold Case Hammarskjöld", "The Ambassador"); in his latest documentary experiment, the controversial author follows Ulrich Larsen, an ordinary chef who spent a decade infiltrating the North Korean regime. "The Mole: Undercover in North Korea" discloses shocking truths about the rule of Kim Jong Un while examining how far a director can be involved in the lives of documentary protagonists.
