Description:
Dear Pyongyang is a documentary film by Zainichi Korean director Yang Young-Hee (Korean: 양영희, Hanja: 梁英姬) about her own family. Shot in Osaka Japan (Yang's hometown) and Pyongyang, North Korea, the film features Korean dialogue with Japanese subtitles. The US release has Japanese and Korean dialogue with English subtitles.

Story

In the 1970s, Yang's father, an ardent communist and leader of the pro-North movement in Japan, sent his three sons from Japan to North Korea under a repatriation campaign sponsored by ethnic activist organisation and de-facto North Korean embassy Chongryon; as the only daughter, Yang herself remained in Japan. However, as the economic situation in the North deteriorated, the brothers became increasingly dependent for survival on the care packages sent by their parents. The film shows Yang's visits to her brothers in Pyongyang, as well as conversations with her father about his ideological faith and his regrets over breaking up his family.
