Algeria’s history is dotted with bloodshed. Hundreds of thousands of people have been massacred in the decade long civil war between Islamic militants and the Algerian Army. Even now unrest, militancy and kidnapping characterize the country. It’s still more or less a no-go area for western journalists. But why is Algeria so troubled? This documentary is a beautifully filmed production getting to the root of Algeria’s problems. We look back through forty years of violence to place modern day Algeria in its proper context. A high-quality look at one of the world’s forgotten conflicts.
