Directed by Gillo Pontecorvo | 1966

With Brahim Haggiag, Jean Martin, Saadi Yacef

“When we revolt it’s not for a particular culture. We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe” (Frantz Fanon). In the mid-1960s, director Gillo Pontecorvo took to the streets of Algeria to recreate the country’s struggle for freedom from France, an uprising in which Fanon was deeply involved. Filmed with the gut-punching immediacy of a newsreel, The Battle of Algiers is an on-the-ground view of anti-colonialist rebellion and a masterpiece of revolutionary cinema.
