INSIDE NORTH KOREA’S DYNASTY
Four-part documentary series for National Geographic
A four-part documentary series examining the extraordinary history of the world’s only hereditary Communist state, North Korea.
Inside North Korea’s Dynasty is a landmark four-part series for National Geographic, exploring three generations and over 70 years of Kim leadership - their motivations, personalities, and family dynamics.
The story begins in 1945 with Kim Il-Sung, a former guerrilla fighter cherrypicked to take control of a fledgling country desperate for leadership; and follows the Kim dynasty through the rule of Kim Jong-Il, and up to the monumental summit between Kim Jong-Un and President Trump in June 2018.
Combining expert insight, first-hand testimony, and one of the largest collections of archival footage related to the Kim dynasty assembled for broadcast, the series provides a look at the Kim family that is more complex and comprehensive than ever attempted before.
