It Was War

Synopsis

"It Was War" draws upon two novelistic memoirs, Commander Azzedine’s « We Were Called Fellaghas » and Jean-Claude Carrière’s « Peace of the Brave », in confronting the Algerian War of Independence. “When I proposed to Commander Azzedine, a mythical figure in the Algerian war of independence, to make a joint film about what our war was, he literally jumped for joy".
