The International Revolution in Algiers Through a Child’s Eyes



As the daughter of Sarah Maldoror and Mário Pinto de Andrade, Annouchka de Andrade had the opportunity to spend time with numerous figures of the international revolution in Algiers during her childhood in the 1960s. In this interview, she reminisces about this time using intimate memories of people and events, rather than perpetuating the mythicized narratives of history books.

This interview is part of The Funambulist 42 (July-August 2022) Algerian Independence and Global Revolution 1962-2022. It will be available for reading to all subscribers on July 4, 2022.
