Journalist and filmmaker Roxy Rezvany began her Nicer Tuesdays talk last month by explaining her creative journey. Roxy grew up “loving art and stories and films but I never went to film school,” she says. Despite this, her career in the creative industry has developed through “jobbing” and the result is a personable approach to the work she makes, leading on to her most recent film Little Pyongyang.
The documentary, which has a heavy focus on design and aesthetics to channel a narrative, tells the story of the North Korean diaspora living in New Malden, London. Motivated by feeling a responsibility to be truthful to the people she’s working with via film, Roxy’s created an intimate documentary which portrays an honest and intimate portrait of North Koreans.
In her in-depth talk, Roxy took the audience through the many challenges she overcame in the making, and the exciting response and conversations the film has stirred.
