AbstractMeeting with the filmmaker René Vautier, who braved the danger in 1958 to make this documentary with basic technical means and in exceptional circumstances in the FLN maquis, during the war in Algeria. Supporting the Algerian cause, the documentary shows people's commitment with the FLN, an organization they are part of, and contradicts the colonial propaganda which used to present the war in Algeria as mere operations of police and maintenance of law and order. It shows the bombing of villages, people fleeing their burned land, and forests ravaged by Napalm. By living among the Mujahideen, René Vautier managed to immortalize life in the maquis with his little camera. the film in question is entitled "Algeria in flames".
