SYNOPSIS:


In response to the call of the Front de Liberation National (F.L.N., the National Liberation Front), thousands of Algerians from Paris and its surroundings marched on October 17, 1961, to protest against the curfew imposed on them. This peaceful demonstration was violently stopped by the police. 50 years later, the filmmaker sheds light on this still taboo subject.

BIOGRAPHY:

Yasmina Adi worked as a press agent before becoming an assistant director in 1997. She subsequently focused on writing documentaries. "L’autre 8 mai 1945 - Aux origines de la guerre d’Algérie", her first film, won the France 3 Broadcast Award at the Mediterranean International Documentary and Reporting Awards in 2008. This documentary also won the SACEM Prix des Etoiles, a prize awarded to the thirty best French television documentaries. "Ici on noie les algériens – 17 octobre 1961" is her second film.
