Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal

In a world where the rich, white, middle-class kids of America hold as much privilege as they could possibly need to secure their places at good colleges, it’s hard to imagine why they would need to cheat to do so. In this documentary with reconstructions built from real wire-tap conversations, those involved in one of the biggest scandals involving the college admissions process are exposed. Alongside the methods, they used to create ‘side doors’ to get young people into college places, the documentary highlights exactly what was said and “It truly is amazing what people will say on the phone when they don’t know the federal are listening.” From Chris Smith – the director that brought the documentary ‘Fyre’ to Netflix and executively produced ‘Tiger King’.

Using a satirical theme to examine Zadi’s identity as a French black man, the film is written and directed by Zadi alongside writer Kamel Guemra and director John Wax.

Under Suspicion: Uncovering the Wesphael Case

When Belgian politician Bernard Wesphael was arrested for the murder of his wife Véronique Pirottonin in 2013 and a trial began in 2015, he was incarcerated. When Wesphael was acquitted in 2016, many questions were left unanswered. His subsequent book release addressed what happened that night publicly but now is the chance for him to tell his story to the camera and many people want to see and hear him tell how his wife came to die in that hotel room. In 2020, Wesphael was finally awarded €83,150 in compensation for his wrongful incarceration at appeal after unsuccessful attempts.
