Here’s Another Comedy About N. Korea

Bummed that you can’t see “The Interview“? Here’s another comedy about North Korea: “The Red Chapel.” It’s a 2009 mock-doc about the repressions of North Korea, chronicling the visit of Brügger and Danish comedians Jacob Nossell and Simon Jul to the country under the pretense of a small theatre troupe on a cultural exchange. The entire trip is a ruse: the trio are actually trying to get a chance to portray the absurdity of the pantomime life they are forced to lead in the DPRK — that’s North Korea to us.
