The 1987 assassination in London of the legendary Palestinian political cartoonist and satirist, Naji el-Ali remains an unsolved crime. But this powerful documentary supplies clues as to his killers through a detailed and informative examination of his prolific life’s work. Shot in Lebanon, Palestine and London, the film draws on archive footage of el-Ali, as well as interviews with his widow Widad and several of the many Arab poets, activists and artists whom el-Ali befriended.
This is a rare insight into one of the icons of the Palestinian political left and arguably one of the most important political artists in modern history.
