On Jan. 7, 2015, two brothers belonging to Al-Qaeda in Yemen stormed the Paris offices of the satiric weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring 11 others before killing a French police officer. Amidst a massive manhunt for the killers, an additional 5 people were murdered and 11 wounded in related attacks over the next two days, including a harrowing stand-off between police and a third gunman, claiming allegiance to ISIS, at a kosher supermarket near the Porte de Vincennes in Paris.
Drawing on exclusive access to hostages, survivors, police, paramilitary forces and intelligence findings and evidence, as well as never-before-seen footage and photographs, Emmy® nominee Dan Reed (HBO’s “Terror at the Mall”) spotlights the courage and resilience of Parisian police and citizens in “Three Days of Terror: the Charlie HEBDO attacks.”
The HBO Documentary Film “Three Days of Terror: the Charlie HEBDO attacks” from Emmy®-nominated director Dan Reed will have its national television debut on HBO on September 19th at 8 PM ET/PT. The remarkable film was recently shortlisted for the 2016 Grierson Awards in the UK for Best Documentary on Current Affairs.
