Hidden State: Inside North Korea

Amid speculation over Kim Jong-Un’s hold on power, Fault Lines gains rare access into North Korea and examines the impact of U.S. policies on the secretive nation.



Miguel Toran for Al Jazeera America

The leadership of the most secretive state on the planet changed hands in 2011 when Kim Jong-Un became the Supreme Leader of North Korea following the death of his father.

Kim's approach to relations with the United States and the international community has been described as erratic. Since he came to power, he launched a long-range rocket, carried out a nuclear test and has been accused of orchestrating a cyberattack on Sony Pictures.

Fault Lines looks at life under Kim Jong-Un and his relations with the United States through on-the-ground access in the capital of Pyongyang, exclusive interviews with recent defectors and insight from experts and scholars.
