The Battle of Algiers (1966) Poster

Pontecorvo's historical epos "Battle of Algiers" is relevant to our and any future generations - the uprise of Algiers' civil population against the French colonists can be translated to any civil rebellion. What makes this film so distinguished is its amazing realism, coupled with strong arguments for both sides of the conflict, and unforgettable crowd scenes that make the audience feel like they are actually there.

The Battle for Algiers [1966] directed by Gillo Pontecorvo. Focuses on the harrowing events of 1957, a key year in Algeria's struggle for independence from France.
