Up next:Hungary's Trauma
Algeria and the WorldA Film by Malek Bensmaïl
Algeria is the largest country in Africa and has immense natural resources. But the continent’s second largest military power seems isolated and ignored on the international scene. While president Bouteflika's regime has fallen and the popular protest movement has shown that the people are ready to enter a more modern and democratic era, the country still appears to be stuck.
This film looks at Algeria’s turbulent history since independence featuring interviews with Algerian ministers, ambassadors and generals, as well as international heads of state, financial experts and advisors.
