Outside the Law: A Film on the Algerian War

Outside the Law, a recent film by Rachid Bouchareb, revisits the Algerian War of the 1940s and 1950s.

Students in HIST 390 History and Film: War in Film may be interested in this film, since we will be watching the classic 1965 film, Battle of Algiers, by Gillo Pontecorvo later this semester when we discuss decolonization conflicts.
