Special Screenings

Rebellion / Mathieu Kassovitz

April 1988, Ouvéa Island in the French colony of New Caledonia. Thirty policemen are kidnapped by Kanak separatists. Three hundred French special-forces operatives are sent to restore order. Two men face off: Philippe Legorjus, captain of the GIGN, an elite counter-terrorism police unit, and Alphonse Dianou, the rebels’ leader. They attempt to find a peaceful solution based on common values and dialogue. Against the backdrop of presidential elections in France, however, the political stakes are high, and order is not necessarily a moral question.
