Film screening of the film, “L’affaire Salah Hamouri,” (“The Salah Hamouri affair”) and discussion with the director, Nadir Dendoune.
Nadir Dendoune is an independent journalist, who met Salah Hamouri beginning in 2012 shortly after he was released from prison. The French-Palestinian spent over seven years in Israeli prison. A French citizen and a resident of Jerusalem, Salah Hamouri faced an Israeli military trial, illegal in regard to international law.
The Israeli army accused him of intending to assassinate an ultra-orthodox rabbi and political leader and being a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). His story, unlike that of Gilad Shalit, the French-Israeli soldier, captured by Hamas in 2006, has received very little media attention in France.
Nadir Dendoune investigates with camera and microphone to try to understand why the case of Salah Hamouri has been little covered in the political sphere and media in France.
