North Korean film exposes Western Propaganda

‘Propaganda’ (95min) – Part 1
Full film now available:…

Here is the formal statement I gave to Federal Police on 16 June 2012:

On a trip to visit family in Seoul in April, I was approached by a man and a woman who claimed to be North Korean defectors. They presented me with a DVD that recently came into their possession and asked me to translate it. They also asked me to post the completed film on the Internet so that it could reach a worldwide audience. I believed what I was told and an agreement was made to protect their identities (and mine).

Despite my concerns about what I was viewing when I returned home, I proceeded to translate and post the film on You Tube because of the film’s extraordinary content. I have now made public my belief that this film was never intended for a domestic audience in the DPRK. Instead, I believe that these people, who presented themselves as ‘defectors’ specifically targeted me because of my reputation as a translator and interpreter.

Furthermore, I now believe these people work for the DPRK. The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology. I chose to keep posting this film because – regardless of who made it – I believe people should see it because of the issues it raises and I stand by my right to post it for people to share and discuss freely with each other.


I have translated this film, laid in the English voice over and subtitles, and on legal advice have blurred the identity of the presenter and/or blacked out certain elements.

Please share and discuss with as many people as you can, and if you have questions for me or want to discuss the content further, please do so below or go to:…

  1. I HIGHLY recommend that everyone watch this video, it’s well worth it. North Korea may be a totalitarian regime, but they have this country’s treasonous communist so-called ‘government’s’ agenda pegged to a T!

  2. Thanks #1. Brutal images, stark truths. I haven’t seen anything more clear on the amoral and criminal corruption of our government and society than this series of videos.

  3. Great movie. I only watched the fifteen minutes provided here, but it’s enough to know that they’re interested in exposing the truth, and are doing a good job of it.
    It’s an excellent lesson for everyone, and a movie that should be spread far and wide, because they’re explaining how propaganda works in a way that will allow people to see through it, which will cause it to lose its effectiveness.
    I hope this winds up at I’d buy a lot of these.
