The Juche Idea

La Trinchera Luminosa
del Presidente Gonzalo


Official Website

(70 min, 2006)

"...the debut feature film from Jim Finn....will undoubtedly become a cult classic. ...an almost anally-retentive eye for the iconography and fashions of the Soviet-era Warsaw pact countries, and a great ear for both the comedy intrinsic to Socialist propaganda dialogue - and pauses - this film is a serious rib-tickler for those who can appreciate lines such as "Capitalism is a kindergarten for boneless children", delivered deadpan." – THE GUARDIAN

"What a delight! How charming and fantastic, so full of rare atmospheres." – Guy Maddin, director

"...a retro gust of Communist utopianism..." – VILLAGE VOICE
