‘Under the Sun’
Shot on the great movie set that is North Korea, Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky’s Under the Sun seems to have begun as an official “documentary” of an eight-year-old girl’s entry into the Children’s Union and ultimately became a documentary of that “documentary.” Something like a behind the scenes look at a Potemkin Village, Mansky’s deadpan depiction of orchestrated reality at certain times resembles The Truman Show, and others, a series of outtakes from Triumph of the Will.
