Hana, Dul, Sed - Football in North Korea

Politics/Society, Austria 2010

This eye-opening documentary offers a poignant insight into Pyongyang's society, exploring the intertwining of ideology in personal and professional realms. Centered on the friendship and shared passion for football among four young women, the film delves into their aspirations beyond mere fame and fortune. As key members of the national team, they experience the perks of prestige and popularity, yet find deeper fulfillment on the pitch, where their hearts feel unbound. While leading North Korea to global recognition, their journey through triumphs and setbacks ultimately leads to retirement and new beginnings. Amidst occasional reunions, the camera quietly captures their post-football lives against the backdrop of the state's grandiose monuments and solemn rituals.
