Made by Frenchman Bastien Dubois, the Sundance-winning Souvenir Souvenir is an animated documentary meta-movie exploring the filmmaker's attempts to learn about what his grandfather did in the Algerian War (1954-1962), a conflict which I knew little about but is apparently infamous for the crimes committed by French forces on Algerian civilians. Indeed, although the theme of the film is the veteran's unwillingness (or inability) to talk about the war, what little we do hear from an Algerian civilian is shocking and it could be that the filmmaker himself did not want to hear the truth. If you like the award-winning Souvenir Souvenir by Bastien Dubois be sure to rate it and share it.
