Battle of Algiers

18 Feb 2014


Global Cultural Studies Program at Point Park University as we screen the 1966 Gillo Pontecorvo classic, The Battle of Algiers. This film illustrates in excruciating detail the horrors of French colonialism in Algeria and the resistance movement that eventually succeeded in overthrowing it. Although it is a dramatization of these historic events, the film nonetheless brings to life the violence, hope, and struggles inherent to any decolonization process. The film is in Arabic and French with English subtitles. The Battle of Algiers continues our Fight Back! Global Politics of Resistance Film Series.
