Le Coup de Sirocco

Loading...
"The "pieds-noir" were Algerians of French heritage who were forced to return to France in 1962, when Algeria became independent. The Narbonis run a little grocery in Algeria and keep their noses out of politics entirely. They are content to mind their own business, in the hopes that others will be equally sensible. Thus, they are bewildered when, in 1962, they are forced to leave what has by now become their native land for the strange country of France. Their adjustment to life in France is aided by the same stick-to-business attitudes which earlier gave them difficulty. Nonetheless, they experience a number of setbacks, as when a slick Parisian (Michel Auclair) tries to talk them into going into business with him." -- UniFrance website.

Algérie, Histoires à Ne Pas Dire: Algeria, Unspoken Stories

Loading...
"'Every country has its dark histories. Algeria as well.' Thus begins Jean-Pierre Lledo's Algeria, Unspoken Stories, the third chapter of his documentary 'trilogy on exile,' which interrogates boldly and critically the story of Algeria's independence, memory, and identity. In a state ruled by a single party and a single ideology, history is cast in a single narrative. Lledo's trilogy undermines its foundations and the outcome of a nationalism, built on ethnicity and religion, that borrows murderously flat colonial binaries of Arab versus European, Muslim versus non-Muslim.

The images that were saved represent an unprecedented historical document: They tell of the Algerian War and the history of the ALN (National Liberation Army), as well as showing life after the war and, particularly, the reconstruction of the cities and the countryside after the war of Independence". -- Wikipedia.
