Algeria, Unspoken Stories

Salim Bachi reviews Algérie, histoires à ne pas dire (Algeria, Unspoken Stories), a controversial 2007 film by Jean Piere-Lledo about the Algerian War. Of public reaction to the film, which is banned in Algeria, Bachi writes: “Jean-Pierre Lledo has been accused of ever evil on earth..[by a] population that didn't have the chance to view the documentary in question. That's the way it goes in Algeria, where we argue endlessly about things we don't know” [Fr].
