The Assassinated Sun | 2004
Based on actual events that occurred in Algeria. Ten years after the 1962 liberation of Algeria, many "pied-noir" (French colonials born in Algeria) stayed on in the country they saw as home. One of the most prominent was Senac, a distinguished poet and radio broadcaster with a large following. The fact that he was gay and stood for a liberal approach to the arts made him a marked man among sections of the homophobic police force that essentially ran the country.
