So crazy!

North Koreans were allowed to watch a western-made film for the first time on TV this past week when the British Embassy made arrangements for the British soccer film Bend It Like Beckham, co-starring Keira Knightley, to be broadcast!

Normally, western films are considered a big no-no in the country, but given the public's love for the sport, an exception was made. However, much of the film's content - including interracial relationships, homosexuality, and religion - was cut out of their edit, leaving the film's new running length to be about an hour.

We find it so unfortunate that so many places enforce censorship to that degree, but we suppose this is a step in the direction of progress!

Hopefully it will continue to come!
