This film was commissioned by the Algerian government to shows the Algerian revolution from both sides — the French foreign legion has left Vietnam in defeat and has something to prove; the Algerians are seeking independence. A look at war as a nasty thing that harms and sullies everyone who participates in it.

THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS
LA BATTAGLIA DI ALGERI
1966, Rialto Pictures, 121 min, Algeria/Italy, Dir: Gillo Pontecorvo
The Algerian struggle for independence is presented in a compelling, ultra-realistic style by director Gillo Pontecorvo in this landmark docudrama. Refusing to make villains of either the colonialist French or the bomb-throwing rebels, Pontecorvo weaves a morally complex, dramatically riveting tapestry that presents a balanced yet passionate view of revolution.

In French, Arabic and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
