Under the loving but firm guidance of an old fan turned director and cultural diplomat, and to the surprise of a whole world, the ex-Yugoslavian now Slovenian cult band Laibach becomes the first rock group ever to perform in the fortress state of North Korea. Confronting strict ideology and cultural differences, the band struggles to get their songs through the needle’s eye of censorship before they can be unleashed on an audience never before exposed to alternative rock’n’roll. Meanwhile, propaganda loudspeakers are being set up at the border between the two Koreas and a countdown to war is announced. The hills are alive… with the sound of music.
“There was so much that could go wrong (and almost did, several times). Like I told my wife when I came back: you’ll have to regard me as a war veteran for some time, I’ll need some time to re-integrate into normal civilian society..."
“I think the movie's mission it is to liberate. The name of the film is Liberation Day. It can also describe some kind of reaction that the viewer – whether Western or North Korean – will possibly have towards his world-view, maybe he will be a little liberated.”
