An Engaged Reading of the North Korean Film “The Wheels of Happiness”

Abstract : This essay is based on a Seminar EHESS 2014-2015 “Studying North Korea: An Introduction” in which the film The Wheels of Happiness (Haengbok-ŭi sure pakwi, 2010) was shown. Initially approached as a review exercise internal to the seminar, the students’ commentaries on several of the film’s more salient themes were sufficiently rich to form the basis of a stand-alone text in French. After much work, this text became a short essay (Gelézeau et al., « Les roues du bonheur, un film nord-coréen », Korea Analysis, juillet 2015, p. 42-47), before being fleshed out into this final article in English.
