I went to north korea to play hockey

 
 

Wait, what?

In March of 2017 I went to North Korea to play in a friendly hockey match against the North Korean Men's National Hockey Team. It was an eleven-day excursion that sent me into the city of Pyongyang as well as the outskirts of the country. 

I was fortunate enough to be able to bring my GoPro along for the ride, so I filmed everything I saw. It was an incredible experience, and left me with thoughts and feelings I wasn't expecting to encounter. I knew that I had to tell my story.

 
 
 

What I learneD...

Here are the three major things that I learned while in North Korea:

  1. A government doesn't always represents its PEOPLE
  2. Sports are a (really) good form of diplomacy. 
  3. Make your own decisions and actively critique them. Why do you believe what you believe?

Thanks to everyone who helped me make this film. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly. I'm happy to do my best to answer them!
