A Crack in the Curtain: Soccer and Sport in North Korea

October 25, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

North Korea, the “Hermit Kingdom,” projects itself outside of it’s boarders: sport, and in particular, soccer. Award-winning journalist James Montague has just returned from North Korea to report on soccer there and to help us understand how that game has become an integral part of the state’s ideology as well as its policy in projecting it’s strength abroad. “A Crack in the Curtain” will look at how important sport is both culturally and politically to North Korea, and give a unique insight into one of the most secretive places on earth.
