Publisher Description

“This unprecedented project is a multimedia e-book containing audio, video, photographs and even interactive annotated panorama views has lifted the curtain on North Korea's propaganda machine, surreptitiously documenting the country's strange everyday life, which is shaped by the regime's indoctrination efforts.” - Mashable


North Korea prevents its citizens from accessing any form of independent media. Any citizen who attempts to access foreign broadcasts to seek information from the outside world risks being interned in one of the state’s notorious prison camps. The very few visitors to the country are strictly forbidden to bring into North Korea radios or other communications equipment. As a result, little independent and objective information about the propaganda based mass-media of the country has been gathered or published. Over successive trips into each province of the country, Behind the Curtain has undertaken monitoring, recording and analysis of the propaganda and broadcast media used by the North Korean regime as a prime instrument of control over the population.


Behind the Curtain offers a immersive experience of interactive diagrams, photos, audio and video. The project when completed will be divided into a series of large downloadable volumes. ​Our first release, this Preview Volume allows select content from the project to be sampled in one single download.

    Top quality research, tremendous source of information!

    Mark Fahey gave a presentation at Hope X titled - Gathering Information in the World’s Most Restrictive Nation. This hour talk shows the authors true fascination with the country and dedication for open source media, being a willing facilitator to spread a glimpse of what the DPRK look, feel, and sounds like. Although his website states a full release of his information was due in 2016, and as claiming being for sharing information free and publicly, I will not vocalize my difficulty in using his findings and media in research projects, I just wish there was a download archive dump instead of imbedding and unreleased info, because of his fearlessness to do what virtually no one else has.
    I thank you
