Five films about North Korea were screened at the University of Southern California’s Korean Film Festival on Saturday and Sunday, with about 300 in attendance.

Hosted by the USC Korean Studies Institute and USC Cinematic Arts and sponsored by the USC East Asian Studies Center, the festival’s theme this year was North Korean mobility in movies.

The standout piece, “Comrade Kim Goes Flying,” was shot in Pyongyang and co-produced by filmmakers in Belgium, the United Kingdom and North Korea. The project tells the story of a coal miner from the countryside who strives to become a famed circus trapeze artist.

Other titles included “Dooman River,” “Secretly, Greatly,” “Poongsan” and “Flower Girl.”
