PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EMBASSY OF FRANCE AND ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE DE CANBERRA
On November 13, 2015, a series of unprecedented and deadly attacks rocked Paris, leaving 130 people dead and hundreds injured. In the aftermath, the French Interior Ministry forms a new anti-terrorism unit, who are immediately put to work. Led by Héloise (Sandrine Kiberlain), Fred (Jean Dujardin) and Inès (Anaïs Demoustier), the investigators quickly find themselves under immense pressure to identify and track down the perpetrators before they can strike again.
A deep dive into one of the most incredible manhunts in European history, this powerful film stormed the French box office in 2022 to become the most successful local film of the year. Rightfully focusing on the highly-charged investigation – and the moral and ethical boundaries it pushes – rather than on the attacks themselves, November is intimately and immensely compelling cinema.
