Terror's Advocate
In French with English subtitles

Communist, anti-colonialist, right-wing extremist?
What convictions guide the moral mind of Jacques Vergs? Barbet Schroeder takes us down historys darkest paths in his attempt to illuminate the mystery behind this enigmatic figure. As a young lawyer during the Algerian war, Vergs espoused the anti-colonialist cause and defended Djamila Bouhired, la Pasionaria, who bore her countrys hopes for freedom on her shoulders and was sentenced to death for planting bombs in cafes. He obtained her release, married her and had two children with her.
Then suddenly, at the height of an illustrious career, Vergs disappeared without trace for eight years. He re-emerged from his mysterious absence, taking on the defense of terrorists of all kinds, from Magdalena Kopp and Anis Naccache to Carlos the Jackal. He represented Historical monsters such as Nazi lieutenant Klaus Barbie. From the lawyers Inflammatory and provocative cases to his controversial terrorist links, Barbet Schroeder follows the winding trail left by this devils advocate, as he forges his unique path in law and politics.
The filmmaker explores and questions the history of blind terrorism and leads us towards shocking revelations that expose long-hidden links in history.
