(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 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.
