Event description: 

The Yale University Library Art & Protest Film Series presents a film screening: 

“The Battle of Algiers”, (Gillo Pontecorvo, 1966, 35mm, 121 mins).

Set during Algeria’s struggle for independence and scored by Ennio Morricone, Pontecorvo’s Golden Lion-winning masterpiece remains tragically relevant and visually astonishing. “Both a how-to manual for guerrilla terrorism and a cautionary tale about how to fight it” (Chris Nashawaty). In Arabic and French with English subtitles. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
