After The Fire

20 March '24 at 6:15 pm to 8:15 am

Following the unlawful killing of her younger brother by police, her family in mourning, Malika embarks on a legal battle for justice. But her quest for truth is in danger of jeopardising her family.

The suspicious death of Karim, killed by police during an investigation, ignites pain and passion in his Strasbourg suburb community as he becomes yet another victim in France’s history of racial profiling and police violence. Malika must decide whether the battle against authorities who are determined to cover up their crime is worth the cost to her family and wellbeing.

Discussion to follow with filmmaker Mehdi Fikri and Kartik Raj, Europe & Central Asia researcher at Human Rights Watch.
