I think that Kim Jong Suk may be visible on those movies, however concerning Kim Jong Il it won't be possible to find something

here links to a movie focused on KJI (three parts):

In re: N. Korean films from 1945-1950, in the mid-1980s I reviewed several NK films in the National Archives, for the documentary Korea: The Unknown War. There were films of Kim's speeches, party meetings, the founding of the KPA in 1948, etc., but I don't recall seeing any film of Kim's wife or of Kim Jong Il. But I didn't see everything. I think these were films that were obtained during the UN occupation of the North in 1950. These films are available to anyone who wants to see them, and can be copied for the cost of doing it.
