Our School

Our School is a documentary film about the lives of ethnic Korean students in a Chongryon-run pro-North Korean highschool in Hokkaido, Japan. Released on 29 March 2007 (Sunday), a Hankook Ilbo article on April 3 (Friday) stated it had already exceeded 10,000 viewers. In the end, media reports claim it registered 85,000 or 90,000 viewer admissions in the South Korean domestic market, a far better performance than other recent documentaries such as the 2002 Yeongmae, the 2004 Repatriation or the 2006 Bisang ; it was suggested this might be a new domestic record. Director Kim Myeong-joon received the Kim Yong-gun Memorial Society prize in relation to his work on the film.
