92 mins, France-Algeria, 2022, Digital, Subtitled

December 5th, 1986: thousands of students protest for higher education reforms. Two young men of North African origin, Abdel Benyahia and Malik Oussekine, are killed by police. When Chief Inspector Daniel Mattei is appointed to investigate, the police force and the government collude to cover up Abdel’s death and to discredit the murdered man. As revolt threatens to erupt amidst a population horrified by the murders in the heart of Paris, the families of both victims, while never meeting, struggle to understand what really happened that night. Mixing archive footage and fiction, Our Brothers prompts reflection and debate on immigration, integration and police violence.
