Enter Pyongyang

Created by city-branding specialist JT Singh & Company and videographer Rob Whitworth, and co-produced by tourism company Koryo Group, "Enter Pyongyang" is a hyperactive time-lapse short promoting North Korea as a travel destination. It's so well made that you should be sure to read the FAQ for a reality check, especially the parts about malnutrition and "severe food shortages," "temperamental supplies of electricity and hot water," and the need to have tourists airlifted to "a western standard of hospital" in Beijing in case of emergency. Also, "Leaving the hotel without the guides or the guides' express permission is not possible," suggesting an outsiders' perspective on North Korea is a highly stage-managed experience.
