The White Knights DVD


In war torn Chad, Africa, hordes of children are left parentless by the on-going conflict. NGO Group ˜Move The Children' touch down with one objective: to rescue the orphans and bring them back to France for adoption. Journalist Francoise (Valérie Donzelli, Declaration of War) is invited to document their work, but as tensions in the group grow increasingly fraught, she starts to question the limits of humanitarian intervention as the line between adoption and abduction begins to blur. Filmmaker Joachim Lafosse, heralded for his powerful dramas such as Private... Property and Our Children, directs a deeply ambiguous drama based on a true story, with Vincent Landon (Winner of Best Actor at Cannes 2015, The Measure of Man) and Reda Kateb (A Prophet).

Joachim Lafosse co-writes and directs this drama based on real events. The film follows members of a French charity organisation as they travel to Chad looking to take advantage of the growing overseas adoption trade. Led by Jacques Arnault (Vincent Lindon), the charity workers aim to trick village chiefs in Chad into giving up local orphaned children in exchange for money, with a plane ready to take them back to France to live with new families. However, with the operation in progress, the presence of journalist Françoise Dubois (Valérie Donzelli) begins to cause tension within the group.
