THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS (1966): New digital restoration! One of the most influential films about revolution in cinema history, vividly re-creating a key year in the Algerian struggle for independence from the occupying French in the 1950s. As violence escalates on both sides; children shoot soldiers at point-blank range, women plant bombs in cafes, and French soldiers resort to torture to break the will of the insurgents. Shot on the streets of Algiers in a documentary style, and featuring a phenomenal soundtrack by Ennio Morricone, the film is a powerful tour-de-force case study in modern guerilla warfare.
