Today the WJFF film series is showing The Battle of Algeirs , involving the Algerians' fought for independance from 1954 - 1962. The movie wiill be shown at the Hippodrome in Loch Sheldrake.

In General Massus' book of 1971 he stated "the  french military was obliged to use torture to vanquish terrorism"
In 2001 the retired torturer revealed the crimes and some of the best kept secrets of France.  He said " we could have gotten along with it (torture) very well" adding that many died before revealing anything useful. France banned this film. But you can see it toight at the Hippodrome.
