Press TV: Ken O'Keefe Discusses New Film 'Rebellion' Directed by Mathieu KassovitzSalem-News.com
A story that is both captivating and relatively unknown in the US.
(TEHRAN Press TV) - In this edition of the show Faiza Ahmed reviews the film; Rebellion, directed by Mathieu Kassovitz. Her guests are Dave Calhoun, film critic with Time Out Magazine, and Ken O'Keefe, activist and Salem-News.com writer.
It was April 1988, Ouvea island, New Caledonia, when 30 French policemen were taken hostage by a group of Kanak separatists.
In response, 300 soldiers from France were sent to New Caledonia to restore order, but 27 soldiers are taken hostage.
Two men come face to face: Philippe Legorjus, captain of the GIGN and Alphonse Dianou, head of the hostage takers.
Through shared values, they will try to win the dialogue. But in the midst of a presidential election, when the stakes are political, order is not always dictated by morality.
