‘Your jaw will drop.’

Variety

A riveting documentary that looks beyond the headlines and delves deep into one of the most bizarre political crimes.

In 2017 Kim Jong-nam – the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – was assassinated in the bustling departures hall of Malaysia’s international airport. The spectacularly brazen murder happened in broad daylight, filmed entirely by security cameras. The guilt of the two young women seen rubbing deadly chemicals into their victim’s face just before his death seemed obvious. But were they ruthless assassins or pawns in a deadly political plot?

Assassins, the latest documentary from director Ryan White, travels from the sanctums of Pyongyang to the rice fields of Indonesia and Vietnam to the courtrooms of Kuala Lumpur to tell an extraordinary tale of manipulation and subterfuge in the age of social media. A masterful investigation that offers an unprecedented look at the real story of Kim Jong-nam’s murder, Assassins is the wildly improbable tale of a calculating dictator, a nefarious plot, a very public murder and two women fighting for their lives.
