Our School (Hangul: 우리학교; RR: Uri hakkyo) is a documentary film about the lives of ethnic Korean students in a Chongryon-run pro-North Korean highschool in Hokkaido, Japan.[1] Released on 29 March 2007 (Sunday), a Hankook Ilbo article on April 3 (Friday) stated it had already exceeded 10,000 viewers.[2] In the end, media reports claim it registered 85,000 or 90,000 viewer admissions in the South Korean domestic market, a far better performance than other recent documentaries such as the 2002 Yeongmae (영매, 20,000 viewers), the 2004 Repatriation (송환, 30,000 viewers) or the 2006 Bisang (비상, 40,000 viewers); it was suggested this might be a new domestic record.[3][4] Director Kim Myeong-joon received the Kim Yong-gun Memorial Society prize in relation to his work on the film.[4]

The film was released on DVD in Japan in 2009.[5]
