Abstract

This television film traces multiple perspectives of the October Massacre during the Algerian War of Independence. It follows members of the National Liberation Front (FLN), French military officers, Parisian police, journalists, and school children to explore how a peaceful protest turned into a violent act of state repression and extralegal violence.
