This written work attempts to analyse the importance of cinematography in the shaping of ideological ideas in North and South Korea. In order to do that, two movies with similar plots about the Korean War were examined, one for each country, and afterwards, the imagery of those is delved into. This paper will contrast the image North Korean soldiers have in both movies as well as the representation of women. This work also considers the moral values thrown in North Korean’s movie society in addition to the influence of cinema in the creation of the idea of anti-communism in South Korea.
