The Battle of Algiers



The Battle of Algiers

Salon Italia - In Italian with English Subtitles

Introduction and post screening discussion with Nick Walker

Director: Gillo Pontecorvo
Screenplay:Franco Solinas
Cast:Brahim Hadjadj, Jean Martin, Yacef Saadi | 1965 | Drama

Perhaps no other cinematic depiction of revolt against colonial rule is so detailed, vivid, and specific. It's a recreation of the insurrection against the French in Algiers in the late Fifties that shows how the French systematically eradicated that insurrection. The film documents the sad foolishness of solving conflicts with violence, the maximum loss and suffering on both sides and the protraction of the inevitable outcome.

Gillo Pontecorvo (I19 November 1919 – 12 October 2006) worked as a film director for more than a decade before his best known film La battaglia di Algeri (The Battle of Algiers, 1966) was released. It won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1966. His other films include Kapò (1960), which takes place in a World War II concentration camp, and Burn! (Queimada, 1969), starring Marlon Brando. In 2000, he received the Pietro Bianchi Award at the Venice Film Festival. He was also a screenwriter and composer of film scores.

The DVD andbluray is distributed in the Uk by Cult Film
