As for all the modern conflicts, the Algerian war has been a high-stake target with regards to depicting images. In light of the plentiful movies shot by the French army and because of its speech, a few film directors, one of whom is René Vautier, engaged themselves with the Algerian fighters to keep images of their struggle. They shot images of a crucial beauty, but most of them had been banned in France and some of them are still lost or even destroyed. A movie that questions about the necessity of cinematic commitment.
