An investigative documentary that takes us behind the scenes to reveal the genesis of, and the stakes involved in the trial of Saddam Hussein. During fifteen months, Jean-Pierre Krief, the director, led the inquiry in Iraq, Jordan, the United States, and elsewhere, interviewing the Iraqi Special Tribunal judges, Hussein’s defense lawyers, victims and their lawyers, high-ranking U.S. administration officials, investigators, and experts involved in the trial.
This unique investigation uses documents, testimony, and images that have never been seen before in an attempt to clarify the shady areas that surround the most talked about trial of contemporary times.
How did the Iraqi Special Tribunal come to be set up? What role did the American administration play in its setting up and operating?
