Doku: Arte Wunderwelten – Nordkorea
Gute Doku, mit einem seltenen Blick auf Kim Il-Sungs sonst gut verstecktes, baseballgroßes Nackengeschwür (bei 22:26).
As he aged, starting in the late 1970s, Kim developed a growth on the right-back of his neck which was a calcium deposit. Its close location near his brain and spinal cord made it inoperable. Because of its unappealing nature, North Korean reporters and photographers, from then on, always shot and filmed Kim while standing from his same slight-left angle to hide the growth from official photographs and newsreels, which became an increasingly difficult task as the growth reached the size of a baseball by the late 1980s.
