Inside North Korea's Dynasty
For decades, Korea and its people labor under Japanese imperialist rule. But in 1912, in a small town outside Pyongyang, a child is born — Kim Il Sung — coinciding with an omen of imperialism’s doom. Kingdom of the Kims explores the story of how an unknown guerrilla fighter rises to power, takes complete control of his country and makes himself a god in the eyes of his people.
The Son of God tracks the decline of Kim Il Sung and the rise of his son, Kim Jong Il. Jong is an unlikely successor to his father. He is not a military man — he is obsessed with cinema, particularly James Bond films. This is the story of how he uses filmmaking and propaganda to win his father’s approval — and power.
Nuclear Family begins as the Cold War ends, when North Korea loses Soviet patronage and the economic support and security that previously sustained the country. As Kim Jong Il takes complete control of the country, he starts a nuclear weapons program. With the country’s economy failing, his government produces counterfeit money and narcotics, all while negotiating with the United States.
Using exclusive interviews, firsthand testimony and expertly curated archives, Rocket Man charts Kim Jong Un’s reign from 2011 to the present. Following the death of Kim Jong II is the rise of his son, Kim Jong Un. Rocket Man delves into how Un consolidates power, his friendship with Dennis Rodman, his nuclear weapon program and the historic 2018 summit with U.S. President Trump.
