Journalist Luca Faccio is among the few Western travelers who know North Korea from within. Having made several trips to the isolated country, he has been able to build relationships with people there.
He has discovered they have the same needs as we do. But they are hidden behind a veil of repression and indoctrination.
Anyone venturing behind the world’s last Iron Curtain into North Korea will experience a very different country to the one we know only through the usual images of rocket launches and mass rallies. The country is ruled by the dictator Kim Jong Un, whom the people worship - or are made to worship - as a god-like father figure. Little is known about daily life in North Korea, because all images that reach the outside world have been censored by the government. Visitors rarely see evidence of oppression, enforced conformity and starvation in the rural population. Still, journalist Luca Faccio is able to offer some interesting insights into the isolated country - although, of course, government watchdogs are on his heels everywhere he goes.
