Still from the North Korean film "Comrade Kim Goes Flying."

You might be familiar with the Sundance Film Festival or the Toronto film Festival, which ended earlier this month, but how about the Pyongyang International Film Festival?

Too bad you'll probably never get to go. And not because it ends today, but because it takes place in North Korea, the world's most closed society.

This year a film called "Comrade Kim Goes Flying" was one of the favorites. Jean Lee, the Associated Press Bureau Chief in Korea, was there to see it.
