Abstract

Filmmakers versus Historians:

The official Algerian history has not always allowed historians to lead their investigations freely, which has left the way open for French researchers, journalists, and historians to recount and comment on this crucial period of our history.

Film production is an essential motor of memories and therefore of history, even if the relations between the two (fields) are complex. While the historical film does not replace written history, it participates fully in the writing of history.
