Comrade Kim Yong Mi is a North Korean coal miner. Her dream of becoming a trapeze artist is crushed by the arrogant trapeze star Pak Jang Phil who believes miners belong underground and not in the air. Comrade Kim goes Flying is North Korea’s first “girl power” movie and the story of a girl reaching for her own dream and carving out her own future. The film was the first North Korean film to be shown to a South Korean public audience at the Busan International Film Festival and marks the change of film direction in North Korea to films made for entertainment purposes only.
