North Korea: the Great Illusion
By David Johanssen
The North Korean military warned the US last week to expect retaliations for their joint military drill with South Korea. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are at their highest level in more than 20 years and now that North Korea has the capability to reach the United States with nuclear weapons, or even EMP weapons, US commanders are becoming increasingly uneasy. The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently stated that “if we thought the survival of our regime was challenged, we would use WMDs.”

On Friday, March 11, at 5pm, Shelter Theater presents the documentary North Korea, the Great Illusion. Filmmakers travel into the hermit kingdom to see through the propaganda of how the North Korean people really live. They also go to South Korea where they meet escaped North Korean refugees who are ready to share their testimonies. After the documentary, we will discuss the current geopolitical implications of North Korea’s nuclear capabilities. 50 pesos.
Frans Bloem brings his world famous cabaret back to Shelter Theater for four shows on March 18, 19, 25, and 26 at 7pm. Bloem is famed for his excellent interpretation of chansonnier Charles Aznavour, who personally allows him to sing his songs. Bloem has traveled to more than 50 countries, entertaining audiences with great success. His exceptional quality as an entertainer not only makes him “that singer with a beautiful voice” but also gives his performance an extra dimension that allows him to communicate in an intense way with his public. Tickets available at La Biblioteca and online at www.sheltervg4.com. 150 pesos.
