    Pyongyang Film Studio - North Korean Holywood

    Film Studio

    The studio was founded in 1947 and has an area of over 1 million square meters. It has whole streets with buildings imitating several places and time spaces; Ancient Korea, China, South Korea in the 1950s, Europe, Japan, etc. Travellers, including local North Koreans, have a chance of wearing film costumes when in the studio as well as seeing short clips of modern DPRK movies.

    The two main focuses are the anti-Japanese struggle and the anti-American war. The main complex is a huge suite of office buildings where apparently postproduction goes on. A short uphill drive takes you to the large sets. Here you’ll find a generic ancient Korean town for historic films (you can even dress up as a king or queen and be photographed sitting on a ‘throne’ carpeted in leopard skin), a 1930s Chinese street, a Japanese street, a South Korean street and a range of structures from a collection of ‘European’ buildings.
