It has been financed by Mohamed Al-Fayed[1] and it is scheduled to premiere at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.[2] 
The film will not yet be screened in the UK, due to 87 cuts that were requested by British lawyers."[3]

Unlawful killing ( = délit d'homicide in French )
"In English law unlawful killing is a verdict that can be returned by an inquest in England and Wales when someone has been killed
by one or several unknown persons. The verdict means that the killing was done without lawful excuse and in breach ofcriminal law.
This includes murdermanslaughterinfanticide and causing death by dangerous driving. A verdict of unlawful killing generally leads
to a police investigation, with the aim of gathering sufficient evidence to identify, charge and prosecute the culprit(s)."
ex : "A jury decided on 7 April 2008 that Princess Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed had been unlawfully killed by the grossly negligent driving
of the following vehicles and the driver of the Mercedes in which they were travelling."

Histoire des Arts



Norman Rockwell,
  'New Kids in the Neighbourhood'


Steve Greenberg,
  'Obama wins'

"Dans le cadre de l'Histoire des Arts, mis en place en janvier pour nous, nous avons travaillé autour de deux 'objets',
la peinture de Norman Rockwell, 'New Kids in the Neighbourhood' et le dessin de Greenberg, 'Obama wins'.
Ce choix s'est 'imposé' à moi car je travaillais justement sur 'the Civil Rights movement' avec mes élèves (voir le manuel de 3è, unit 4,
'je rends compte de l'évolution des droits dans le passé'), les élèves ont adhéré au projet.
Les séances spécialement dédiées à la préparation de l'épreuve orale pour le Brevet se sont déroulées en français, langue de l'épreuve
mais cela n'a posé aucun problème de repasser à l'anglais.
L'occasion de revoir le film 'Mississippi Burning' et de redécouvrir certains tableaux de Rockwell
(the Problem we all live with, Southern Justice, Gossips etc. )
et d'échanger un mail avec Greenberg qui nous a expliqué la technique employée pour son dessin.

COCAINE



Cocaine: a European Union perspective in the global context
EMCDDA; Europol, Lisbon, April 2010
"This report provides an overview of what is known about how cocaine is produced and trafficked into the European Union.
It aims to provide a better understanding of the actors involved, the routes taken, and the scale of the problem in Europe.
It also reviews some of the supply reduction responses already developed at European level. Its findings are based
on the latest data and analysis available from specialised European and international organisations, NGOs and scholars.
This publication is structured in a way that provides a condensed review of key issues relevant to understanding
how cocaine reaches European markets. Background information on the chemistry and legal status of cocaine and crack cocaine,
as well as key European figures, are also provided."

TORTURE

The Torture Memos, sometimes called the Bybee Memo or 8/1/02 Interrogation Opinion,
"were a set of legal memoranda drafted by Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the United States John Yoo and signed by Assistant Attorney General Jay Bybee. They advised the Central Intelligence Agency, the United States Department of Defense, and the President on the use of
mental and physical torment and coercion such as prolonged sleep deprivation, binding in "stress positions," and waterboarding, and stated that
acts widely regarded as torture might be legally permissible under an expansive interpretation of Presidential authority during the "War on Terror." These memoranda have been the focus of considerable controversy, and were repudiated by President Barack Obama in early 2009."
