Report
BACK
 

“Last May, I spent ten days in North Korea, and it was by far the most bizarre experience I have ever had. The idea was to report on the elites supporting the paranoid regime of President Kim Jong-un. We saw champagne flowing in spite of sanctions and children singing the glory of the nuclear program. We dined on a yacht by the river in Pyongyang and felt like we were in a lost galaxy, or in East Berlin, in the 1960s.

- Imma Vitelli

How do you report in a totalitarian state with three government minders, two "guides" and a photographer who takes photos of you taking photos of North Korea? How do you come up with a story in a country where you have no freedom at all? I will teach what to do, what to avoid and how to see what the state will rather hide.
