Streaming Video - 2015

When gunmen shot dead 12 people in the attacks on Charlie Hebdo magazine, the hashtag "Je Suis Charlie" seemed to unify France. But for many young Muslims it was a symbol of their growing alienation from mainstream French society, where the right-wing Front Nationale is now the leading party for the under-35s. British journalist and comedian Shaista Aziz travels to France to find out why the country has become so divided. As the country reels from attacks carried out by French Muslim extremists, she meets the ordinary young Muslims who feel rejected by their country, with some even hiding their Muslim identity to get work. Shaista confronts the far-right youth organizations who believe foreigners should be repatriated. In a rare interview, she speaks to Dieudonne, the controversial comedian who talks about what he calls the double standards over free speech that exist in France today.
