Bloody Beans (Loubia Hamra)

1h 20m Documentary, Fiction 2013

17 kids, relentless and insatiable in their gestures and screams, set everything on fire. They become grand heroes of an unwritten war; while the French Army fires at the OAS, the children loot the French Army: oil, chocolate, semolina, sugar, and even a war prisoner condemned to eat beans. But the war catches up with the beautiful adventure, and the beans are marred in blood.

Through the transgressive and powerful imagination of children, the movie depicts the end of French Algeria.
