International Tourism, (Marie Voignier, 2014)

How does a dictatorship exhibit itself to the tourists visiting it? What kind of narration, actors, and staging does it summon? International Tourism (2014) has been shot as a recording of a show on the scale of a whole country, North Korea. The film questions the way the nation fabricates its images, between politics, mythology and imagination.
