With France in a state of shock and mourning following the most recent attacks on its capital this new documentary pays tribute to the 11 journalists of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, one year after they were killed by radical Islamic extremists. The events then, galvanized a country as millions gathered in the streets of French cities to protest the attacks and stand with Charlie.
Emmanuel and Daniel Leconte's film is a document of the social upheaval that followed, as seen through television footage as well as the filmmakers' own cameras. In this sense, Je Suis Charlie is a public record; but its true power lies within the interviews the Lecontes collect both before and after the assault on the Charlie Hebdo journalists.
The result is a highly moving film that will inspire an examination of the complex issues that the magazine continues to raise.
