D: Adam Sjoberg | China/South Korea/USA | 87 min | Korean with English subtitles

After fleeing his native North Korea to defect to the south, Sun Mu works under his defiant alias meaning “no boundaries,” to criticize the repressive regime. A former propaganda artist, he subverts familiar images which once glorified the leadership, transforming them into satirical political pop art. Offered an unlikely and dangerous solo exhibition in China, the anonymous artist prepares his show undercover, potentially risking his own freedom and safety to expose the truth through art. While he may be physically free of the shackles of North Korea, the evil forces there could overshadow his art and jeopardize his promising career.
