London Socialist Film Co-op screening and discussion at the Renoir on Sunday 12 October 2008 at 10.30am.

DAYS OF GLORY (Indigènes)
Rachid Bouchareb, Algeria/France/Morocco/Belgium 2006, 128 mins, EST, (12A)

Four North African soldiers enrolled in the French Army are sent to the front line during World War II, each with a different personal purpose as they fight their way through the Italian Campaign and on to liberate France from the Nazi occupation. One seeks booty; one has joined up to escape poverty, hoping that he will find security in the army; one wants to marry and settle in France; while the fourth – by joining in the fighting – hopes for equality and recognition of the rights of the colonised Algerians.They encounter only discrimination in the army. The film is a complex depiction of their shabby treatment in an organisation prejudiced in favour of the European French, a wartime injustice which relates directly to continuing modern tensions.

Discussion led by Kunle Olulode, Chair Camden Black History Month Forum
