It Was War / C'était la guerre
C'etait la guerre draws upon two novelistic memoirs, Commander Azzedine's We Were Called Fellaghas (1974) and Jean-Claude Carrière's Peace of the Brave (1989), in confronting the Algerian War of Independence. "Burlesque, unreal, or bloody, the images that I kept of that time in Algeria are the strongest of my life," Jean-Claude Carrière would recall of his service in the French Air Force during the Algerian War. "When I proposed to Commander Azzedine, a mythical figure in the Algerian war of independence, to make a joint film about what our war was, he literally jumped for joy. Soon Ahmed Rachedi and Amazit Boukhalfa joined us, and on our side, Maurice Failevic, himself a former Algerian.
