The Assault

Chrysalis director Julien Leclercq's The Assault (L'assaut) is scheduled to be screened at the Festival du film de Sarlat on November 12th. Mars Distribution is scheduled to release it theatrically in France on March 9th of next year. Elle Driver is the international sales agent for it.

Here's a description of The Assault from Elle Driver: "Saturday 24th December 1994. Four GIA terrorists hijack an Air France A300 Airbus at Algiers airport. TheAirbus, bound for Paris, has 227 passengers on board. No one knows exactly what the terrorists' intentions are, just that they are armed and extremely determined. They demand the liberation of their 'brothers in arms' and want the aircraft to take off at once. After very lengthy and intense negotiations between the French and Algerian governments, the plane is finally allowed to leave. There are three main characters at the heart of the action: a member of the GIGN, Carole Jeanton, an ambitious technocrat willing to go to any lengths to achieve personal gain from the events, and Yahia Abdallah, a determined jihadist who grew up in the slums of Algiers and was being manipulated by an obscure GIA envoy, Ali Touchent. Each one will follow their own ideology until their paths cross in the final outcome. In front of an audience of 21 million television viewers, an assault by the GIGN brings the hostage crisis to an end. Never, in the history of terrorism had a crisis such as this arisen. It was to be a foretaste of the terrible events of September 11th 2001."
