The new documentary “Assassins” first made waves at the 2020 Sundance film festival. The film follows the wild events surrounding the 2017 assassination of Kim Jong-Un’s brother, Kim Jong-Nam and the two young women who were accused of killing him. But there’s much more to the story. KPCC’s John Horn spoke with Director Ryan White about capturing what really happened and why he thinks a cautionary tale is at the heart of the film.
