The 1987 assassination in London of the legendary Palestinian political cartoonist and satirist, Naji el Ali remains an unsolved crime. But this powerful documentary supplies clues as to his killers through a detailed and informative examination of his prolific life's work. Shot in Lebanon, Palestine and London, the film draws on archive footage of elAli, as well as interviews with his widow Widad and several of the many Arab poets, activists and artists whom el Ali befriended. This is a rare insight into one of the icons of the Palestinian political left and arguably one of the most important political artists in modern history.
