FRANCE | 100 minutes | 2017

North Korea as you’ve never seen it in this gripping recollection by celebrated documentarist Claude Lanzmann (Shoah) of a love lost. In 1958, Lanzmann was part of the first European delegation invited to visit North Korea. Napalm muses on the notion of memory through a tale of impossible love. Narrated by the filmmaker, the story becomes novelesque and epically romantic. He speaks; we listen. We understand that, above all, cinema is also the act of imagining, of dreaming off-camera.
