Laika’s film “The Witness”, broadcast at Al Jazeera Arabic in March 2015, has been selected for competition in Festival International du Grand Reportage d’Actualité et de Documentaire de Société (FIGRA).

The film is about Abn El Baset Bani Auda, a witness in the UN-investigation into the murder of former prime minister of Lebanon Rafik Hariri. A Swedish UN-investigator, Bo Åström acts inappropriate in the investigation and gives the witness promises he can not keep.

This is the third time Laika is represented in the festival.
