Decolonizing Movies: THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS by Gillo Pontecorvo
October 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
One of the most influential political films in history, The Battle of Algiers, by Gillo Pontecorvo, vividly re-creates a key year in the tumultuous Algerian struggle for independence from the occupying French in the 1950s.
As violence escalates on both sides, children shoot soldiers at point-blank range, women plant bombs in cafés, and French soldiers resort to torture to break the will of the insurgents.
