The film opens with the French massacres in Algeria on May 8th 1945, ends in 
the archives of the Stasi, and in the two hours in between traces the unlikely 
political biography of French-Vietnamese lawyer Jacques Vergès: his days in the 
Resistance, student friendship with Pol Pot, marriage with Djamila Bouhired, 
disappearance for most of the 1970s, and, retold in a series of interviews, his 
involvement with many of the clients he defended, from members of the Algerian 
and Palestinian resistance to the Khmer Rouges, Carlos and Klaus Barbie.

At the risk of stating the obvious: to screen this film right now is neither 
more nor less appropriate than it would be on any other day. Terror has a long 
history, and as it's getting longer, the need to acknowledge more than just the 
present moment is not suspended just because Daesh or Twitter may suggest so.
