I SAW BEN BARKA GET KILLED

by Serge Le Péron

synopsis

January 1966. The police find the corpse of Georges Figon, the man who blew the whistle on the Ben Barka scandal which shook the Gaullist government. A year earlier… Fignon, tired of dubious deals and petty scams, is on the hunt for a lucrative project. Connected to the underworld since the time he spent in jail, he's put in charge of a substantial project: to produce a documentary about decolonisation.
