Abstract

From the first attacks of November 1954 to Algerian independence in 1962, this landmark documentary disrupts familiar narratives of the Algerian conflict by presenting it through eyewitness testimony previously unavailable to the public and closely analyzed archival evidence. Interviews with Pieds Noirs (European settlers), Fellaghas (Algerian peasants), professional soldiers, conscripts, Algerian auxiliaries, and civilians reveal how people engaged in this conflict, sometimes against their will.
