Chronicles of my Village is the story of Bachir's childhood during the Algerian war of independence. The film considers how a child's innocence, curiosity and dreams can play alongside the struggles of a country in search of its own identity.
This is the story of the child I was during the Algerian war of liberation. The war is not the issue in the film; the story is about the years of my innocence, despite the war and its horrors.
