Description

Gillo Pontecorvo, 1966, 120 min.

The Battle of Algiers reconstructs the events that occurred in the capital city of French Algeria between November 1954 and December 1957, during the Algerian War of Independence. The tactics of the FLN guerrilla insurgency and the French counter insurgency, and the uglier incidents of the war, are depicted.

Support for this series on the CINEMA OF RESISTANCE is provided by the Knapp Family Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. Additional support provided by our co-sponsors at Columbia: the School of the Arts; MA Program in Film Studies at the School of the Arts; European Institute, Sakip Sabanci Center for Turkish Studies; Heyman Center for the Humanities, Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Theory, Institute for Research on Women, Gender and Sexuality, Committee on Global Thought, and Columbia Global Centers.
