Un rêve algérien
Zabaltegi Specials

Henri Alleg is 36 when he comes to terms with the idea of dying for a country that's not his own. He is one of the first torture victims to publicly reveal to the whole world the activities of the French Army in Algeria in La question, a book published in 1958, at the height of the war of independence. For the Algerians, Henri Alleg is above all a mythical newspaper, the Alger Républicain. For the author of this documentary, Henri and his companions are above all the proof that another Algeria was possible, an Algeria in which everyone (Arabo-Berbers, pieds-noirs and Jews) could have lived side by side.
Tlemcen (Algeria), 1947. Son of a Jewish-Berber mother and a father of Catalonian origin, Lledo participated in the Algerian war of Independence. He studied Film at the VGIK in Moscow. He made several movies in Algeria, all censored, from 1977 until 1993, the year in which he was obliged to take exile in France. His filmography includes two fictional feature films (L'empire des rêves, 1982; Lumières, 1989) and numerous documentaries on social subjects, including Lisette Vincent, une femme algérienne (1998) and Algérie, mes fantômes (2003).
