All the Dictator’s Men
by Marjolaine Grappe [France 2018, 63′ (v.o. sott.)]

North Korea has covertly developed a weapon whose secret the superpowers believed they alone possessed: the nuclear bomb. How has this country, ostracized by the international community and one of the world’s poorest nations, managed to build up such an arsenal?

Five years of investigation will reveal the secrets behind the financing of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and the ongoing tragedy of the Dictator’s Men, working in the wings to bring cash into the country at all costs and ensure the regime’s survival.

Marjolaine Grappe is an investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker. Her work on the financing of North Korea’s nuclear weapons was awarded by the 2018 Albert Londres Prize, the highest French journalistic distinction. She began her career as a producer covering Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential election on the campaign trail.
