The Battle of Algiers

The Battle of AlgiersGillo Pontecorvo, 2003

‘The Battle of Algiers’ remains one of the outstanding films of post-war cinema.Not only for its graphic portrayal of the Algerian struggle against French colonialism but also for the pioneering cinematography. An early example of ‘docudrama’,the audience is placed right in the centre of the Arab casbah as the struggle for independence unfolds.
