The Goldman Case

Goldman-Case image FINAL Play Button

Following what many consider to be the trial of the century, The Goldman Case watches French left-wing activist Pierre Goldman as he appeals a conviction for the 1969 murder of two pharmacists in Paris. Already known as a revolutionary following a memoir he wrote in prison, Goldman staunchly defends his innocence.

While he admits to armed robbery charges, he infamously declines to call any character witnesses to help his case. Goldman insists that he be judged solely on facts, rather than emotional appeals or theatricality. Cédric Kahn’s enthralling courtroom drama examines Goldman’s role as an anti-hero for the French left, as well as institutional corruption’s hand in a case that famously divided a country.
