Directed by Gillo Pontecorvo | 1980

With Brahim Hadjadj, Jean Martin, Yacef Saadi

“If any movie squeezes you into the shoes of grassroots combatants fighting a monstrous colonialist power for the right to their own neighborhoods, this is it.”
—The Village Voice

Banned for many years in France (and screened at the Pentagon in 2003 as a document of terrorist insurgency), this searing classic of political cinema explores the inner workings of the National Liberation Front in its struggle to win Algeria’s independence through violent means. With provocative depictions of guerrilla warfare and torture amid a crowded urban landscape—rendered all the more intense by Morricone and Pontecorvo’s powerful, militaristic score—the film became popular in the US at the peak of anti-Vietnam War sentiment and was even nominated for an Oscar.
