6:46 pm
can do anything just because they can doesn't mean they should. in the franchise's latest installment the angels have gone global with the butt kicking agents all over the planet. i sure am just a decrease that person steward backed up by newcomers i love bill and sky. together these new angels have to protect a young whistleblower engineer played by me scott only programmer on a couple clinton revolution and the power industry but there's a possibility it can be weaponized and i could be too. but. not i'm jane not the movie's written produced and directed by elizabeth banks who plays the angels manager fosli ironic over groups of exceptional women. you guys are like ladies. please work out. thank you.
6:47 pm
again it's the 1st film in the charlie's angels franchise with a female director just as the. i really wanted to build. the camaraderie and sorority and surrounding scene work i want to change the names of colleagues to me to write. this reboot brings charlie's angels into 29 teams with plenty of action but also. message of solidarity becomes part as in taking down international. if you. take into. cold a david leavitt's joins me now here we go again david so what is different this time around right well i think you really can't tell this time that this is a movie made by women for women i mean i think looking back at the old charlie's angels in the series the other movies from the early 2000 we have this idea that
6:48 pm
they were always about female empowerment but if you actually look at that old series it's kind of condescending i'm talking about the series from the late seventy's you know it's kind of like oh look they're cute they can shoot they can carry. this is no hold up today at all and the 1st 2 movies in the early 2000 starring cameron diaz drew barrymore lucy woo these are really raunchy comedies that are clearly made by a man who are madly you know anything like that i just like to write rough and hard because it's about you know i signed that release waiver so you can just feel free to stick things in my slot yeah the look of easter gears to the no one. it's the new one is all about fashion which i don't know you know you get this this new character who's supposed to be an engineer who turns into the new charlie's angels and she's so excited about the closets that they've got most of the flirtations things are so much more innocent in this movie that you'd be surprised
6:49 pm
i'm going to do all full text but go on sorry where you got you've got these this is the sort of have the hots for this young chemists and there are jokes about my favorite my favorite chemical is fawcett and kristen stewart walks by and she's all are you flirting with with the handsome nerd and that's sort of the existence of it in this movie which is so different from drew barrymore licking this hearing we all hope my. times of chinese it is different i can see that but it still begs the question why is hollywood really doing this again well hollywood's all about action franchises right now if it's a commercial thing you know they're leaving leaving it to amazon and netflix to take the risks they want movies that have name recognition and that's what a movie franchise like charlie's angels does it's also got a very commercial soundtrack with every on agron day miley cyrus a lot of del ray. stars that young girls the teenage girls and young women really really like to their credit though this is different it's got cameos by all
6:50 pm
kinds of really strong female role models olympic athletes. and you've got you've got kristen stewart who is in a relationship with a woman she's playing possibly the 1st gay angelus not really clear so this is a much more work much more 2019 version ok story ok look at. the cinema you as they say from november the 15th all around the world david leavitt's thanks very much. why we here in germany have been said to write in the 30th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall there's another country which has been divided even longer no wolf and south korea never signed a peace treaty at the end of the korean will back in 1950. 3 and they're still technically at war the artists used to work as a propaganda artist for the regime but escaped and now lives in the south he fears that unity or reunification is a distant dream. of

a lost somewhere in bavaria a makeshift studio for an enemy of the state sun moon has fled north korea meaning he's the only contemporary artist from that country who can work. freely means incognito wearing a mask to protect both himself and his family here he's painting a fish in blood red sea spray it's sun moves last painting before he returns to south korea where he lives in exile. it's interesting to compare the current situation in divided korea with german reunification here east and west one again many people remain divided i feel the same way as i see and draw myself within this in between. north korea is the world's last remaining past the end of stalinism and it's one with perfect command of propaganda techniques perspectives that create a sense of being overpowered using the masses as on him. and his early work sun
6:52 pm
moon copied the official aesthetic and was so good at it that he was trained as a north korean propaganda painter. i started painting because i wanted to make chemical song and kim jong il happy with my pictures. and move lead a basically harmonious life he was looking forward to a great career as a painter in service to kim jong il but then in the mid 1990 s. came the catastrophe. really united nations estimates some $20000000.00 are starving resorting to eating roots and grass there's only enough food for each adult to get 100 grams per day. starvation drove sun moon into the tumen river he swam to china knowing he could never return so most escapes still affects him to this day he depicts it in his paintings and sketches the absurd odyssey through pyongyang beijing and laos covering thousands of kilometers in order to
6:53 pm
reach south korea just over the border. he was helped by the chinese mafia who smuggle him to laos where he struggled his way through the jungle. when he finally saw the church crosses above seoul it seemed unreal and freedom brought confusion a cult of personality in pop music a uniformity of commercial brands. the dominating position of religion. all strategies that seem similar to those used in north korea. in north korea there is one political ideology but in south korea there are several powerful ideologies. since i painted so many propaganda paintings i was sensitized to those things. today some movie uses a propaganda stick style to oppose the powerful and challenge taboos in both north
6:54 pm
and south korea exhibitions in china germany and the united states have made the artist increasingly well known. combines ideological symbols from north and south korea seeking a new language of fellowship. he turns propaganda into a melancholy utopia. and powerful at the end of our interview sun moon sings a song. because. it's the in official anthem of unified korea. fascinating story that now with winter approaching here in the northern hemisphere and the night sky i think cold of this is the most difficult time of year for homeless people at the moment in a church here in berlin that's
6:55 pm
a very moving exhibition of photos featuring people with most of us a blind eye but not the photographer the burra rupert. remember i meet with people who have become invisible people on the margins of society in. basic essential things were taken away from them there aren't really seen anymore in fact they're not seen at all. back. then based photography has been taken photos of homeless people for 10 years her latest works are currently on show in a church in berlin and an exhibition called no space and counters with people without a home. it's important to me that you see the person and the human with his story with us when he bends and that
