Image

The opening of the trial against Klaus Barbie on the lunch hour news show "Midi 2," dated May 11 1987. Press were only allowed to film the opening of the trial. Shots include the arrival of Klaus Barbie and the President of the Court (the steward of the trial, Andre Cerdini), the roll call of attorneys and present witnesses, and commentary by Midi 2's reporter on the trial itself. The press are dismissed at the end of the clip, as they aren't allowed to film anything beyond the very start of the session before jurors are selected. As the dismissal takes place, the reporter (Paul Lefevre) describes how the trial itself will be filmed by government cameras.
