Movie Info

With IT'S HARD BEING LOVED BY JERKS, director Daniel Laconte (Fidel Castro: L'enfance d'un chef) offers a real-time account of one of the most important trials in the 21st century and dives deep into the political, ideological and media-related stakes of the trial with all key participants. The film features lawyers, witnesses, the media, editorial conferences, demonstrations of support, as well as the reactions of the prosecutors and of Muslim countries. Given new relevance after the January 7, 2015, attacks at the Charlie Hebdo offices, which left 12 dead and 11 wounded, IT'S HARD BEING LOVED BY JERKS also features candid interviews (and rarely seen behind-the-scenes moments) with acclaimed Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, such as Cabu, Charb, Tignous and Wolinski, who died on January 7.

Free speech or hate speech, daring activists or danger junkies? Among the issues this doc does not pursue, seemingly living outside history along with the gleeful Charlie Hebdo cartoonists it celebrates. Whose demise yes, could be connected to the CIA.
