Having been granted special permission to film inside one of the most secretive countries in the world, Britain’s fastest snowboarder, Jamie Barrow, sets off to experience first-hand this country we know so little about – North Korea
So much more than just another ski/snowboard film, this stunning 4K documentary with an original music score, give a great insight into this fascinating country.
Jamie Barrow could be the Louis Theroux of the ski/snowboarding world, as he delivers this documentary with the same sly skill and slightly raised eyebrows as he is taken from the bustling city, to the most militarised border in the world (Trump will no doubt get ideas for the Mexican border), to a deserted museum of captured US Military vehicles. The whole time being watched 24-7 by ‘tour guides’.
The highlight of the trip is almost deserted five star ski resort where Barrow lets rip down untracked, powder piste and treelined off-piste runs. Barrow even teaches the ‘tour guides’ how to snowboard and they seem to get the bug!
