The Camp at Thiaroye (Camp de Thiaroye)

Rated NR 157 minutes

Writer/directors Ousmane Sembene and Thiermo Faty Sow based Camp de Thiaroye on their own experiences. During the French/Algerian war, a group of black soldiers fight on the side of France. But when hostilities cease, they are detained by their own government in the titular prison camp before being sent home. While incarcerated, they begin to wonder if their cause -- actually their country's cause -- is truly worth it. Camp de Thiaroye was jointly financed by sources from Senegal, Algeria and Tunisia.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
