They'll be packing 'em in at Pyongyang's fleapits this month

"A 10-day film show was opened with due ceremony at the People's Palace of Culture today to celebrate February 16, the birthday of General Secretary Kim Jong Il".


Kurosawa and Ford are obviously out of the question, so a Bergman retrospective, maybe? Or perhaps a season of Fassbinder? Maybe the works of Satyajit Ray?

Nope.

"Among them are documentary films "Kim Jong Il Gives Field Guidance to Various Sectors" (I do hope this is on ebay), "Cherishing the Leader's Desire" (Ooh err) and "February 16, the Greatest Holiday of the Korean Nation."

Feature films including "Photograph Left by Him", "Airman Kil Yong Jo", "People in Jagang Province", "Taehongdan County's Chief Party Secretary" (That title makes the heart beat double time, does it not?) and "A Schoolgirl's Dairy" (sic. The cream of the crop. I'm sure it won't be too cheesy, although I expect it will involve much buttering up of KJI, and the milking of the Juche angle for all it is worth) will also be screened".

I'd like to add an 'ooh-er' to 'A schoolgirl's diary'.
