In 1962, the French film director René Vautier, together with some Algerian friends, organized an audiovisual formation center to encourage a “dialogue in images” between the two factions involved in the Algerian War (1954–62). A film was edited from that experience, but the French police partially destroyed it. The images that were saved represent an unprecedented historical document: They tell of the Algerian War and the history of the Algerian Liberation Army (Armée de libération nationale, ALN), as well as the armed wing of the National Liberation Front of Algeria (FLN). The footage shows life in Algeria after the war and, particularly the reconstruction of the cities and the countryside after the conflict subsided.
