Abstract

This documentary, censored for over ten years, explores the Paris Massacre of 1961 during the Algerian War for Independence through interviews, newsreel, and re-enactments.. After implementing a curfew for all Algerians in the city, the Naltional Liberation Front (FLN) organized a non-violence protest. In response, the police launched a full-scale attack on over 30,000 demonstrators, including mass arrests and firing on the crowd. White Parisians responded in-kind as well, leading to mass evictions and murder.
