True crime 29x52'

Miscellaneous Facts

In what way do news stories reflect our society? How have some of them made our society evolve? From the post-war period to the present day, this series looks back at widely publicized stories that shed light on the sociological, political and legislative changes in our society.  The legalization of abortion, women's rights, divorce legislation, racial laws, sects, youth revolt, unemployment, but also the abolition of the death penalty…. These are changes and trends that will be told through sometimes famous, sordid events.

Through archive images, witnesses and reconstructions, each episode looks back on a crime, a story of men and women, to reveal a shadowy part of each one, approached under the prism of a unique story.
