In this spot for National Geographic’s upcoming documentary film, Inside North Korea’s Dynasty, New York-based creative agency Bigstar cast ghostly newsreel video on CGI-created bronze statues of North Korea’s dynastic leadership, including current President Kim Jong-un, his father, Kim Jon-il, and his grandfather Kim Il-sung.
“It’s simply impossible to understand Kim Jong-un and predict his actions, without putting that in the context of his father. Basically, [it’s a] family-run dictatorship,” says one commentator in the voiceover.
The documentary airs Sunday, November 11, at 9/8 c.
