event Details

War of Art
Norway | 2018 | 102mins | English | Dir. Tommy Gulliksen

What happens when a group of international artists travel to North Korea to create art like the regime have never seen before?

War of Art portrays the clash of cultures: while the Western culture is keen on originality, North Korean seems more concerned about the quality of performance. Both groups of Western and Korean artists talk about spiritual values conveyed through art, but the values themselves seem to be radically different.
