North Korea is one of the most politically and culturally isolated countries in the world, where any foreign influences is systematically rejected through a tight political control of media and culture. Paradoxically, the leader Kim Jong-Il and wealthy political elites have the resources and influence to experience at will various expressions and forms of western cultures.

Filmed on location in South Korea and split into four episodes, Pizzas for the People is a comedy film aimed as a gentle satire and a subtly subversive introduction for North Koreans into diverse aspects of western culture.

Shot in a style in between soap opera and homemade video, the four episodes of Pizzas for the People demonstrate how to Make a Pizza, Pack a Suitcase To Go Abroad, How To Become A Trend Leader At Pop Dancing and How to celebrate Christmas Day.

To circumvent censorship and reach a North Korean audience, the film has been converted to 500 DVDs smuggled over the North Korean borders from China, by infiltrating a network of small time smugglers who distributed the film on the black markets of the capital.

Pizzas for the People is accompanied by a series of specially designed political props that have been inserted into the four episodes as well as a documentary movie showing the making of the final film. The documentary includes production consultation with North Korean exiles and secretly filmed footage of the DVD being smuggled to North Korea.

매체와 통신수단의 철저한 통재를 바탕으로한 오랜 봉쇄정책으로 인해 북한은 세계에서 가장 문화적으로 고립된 국가로 꼽힌다. 외국 문명으로 부터 북한 고유의 문화정체성을 지킨다는 명목아래 집중적인 통제가 실시되고 있지만 역설적이게도 김정일 일가와 정치 상류층은 다양한 통로를 통해 외국 문화를 즐기는 것으로 알려져 있다.

피자 만드는 법, 외국갈때 비행 가방 꾸리기, 한국 가요 춤추는 법, 크리스마스 즐기는 법등, 총 4개의 에피소드로 구성된 일종의 코미디 영화인 모두를 위한 피자는 북한의 감시망을 피해 외국 문화의 다양한 측면들을 북한의 일반사람들이게 소개하고자 제작되었다.

두 젊은 북한 남녀의 조그마한 사랑 이야기로 구성된 이 짧은 유투브 형식의 영상들은 북한 암시장의 불법 한국 드라마 배포 루트를 따라 북한 주민들에게 배포 되었다. 그 후 약 6개월 동안 제작진은 북한 주민들에게 사진, 메모 등 지속적인 피드백을 받고 있다.

모두를 위한 피자는 단편영화 , 영화 속의 정치 게릴라성 미장센과 오브제들, 밀수과정이 담긴 다큐멘터리가 한데 어울어져어떻게 디자인이 정치적 현상에 도전하여 사회 또는 문화적으로 기여 또는 충격을 가할 수 있는지 표류하는 일종의 디자인/다원예술 실험이다.
