BEIJING — Tickets to the premiere of the North Korean romantic comedy “Comrade Kim Goes Flying” may be hard to get, so it’s O.K. to reveal that the coal miner-turned-trapeze-artist finally nails her quadruple aerial somersault.
Nicholas Bonner, an Englishman based in Beijing, co-wrote and co-directed the 82-minute film with the North Koreans Ryom Mi-hua and Kim Gwang-hun. The Belgian filmmaker Anja Daelemans was co-producer.
