“Liberation Day” is an inquisitive documentation of an unusual event – the celebration of the 70th anniversary of liberating the Korean Peninsula from the Japanese occupation. The unprecedented concert took place in North Korea with its foreign star being the controversial band Laibach, infamous for using fascist iconography. The authors managed to take a sneak peek at Kim Jong-un’s regime, accompanying the band in their obstacle-filled trek through the maze of censorship and bureaucracy.
