Why Pontecorvo Matters - The Battle of Algiers
Highly influential political cinema from Italian Gillo Pontecorvo, this riveting film depicts the Algerian struggle for independence from France, culminating in the Algerian uprising of 1957. In an escalating conflict of colonial brutality pitted against insurrection and acts of terror, the film is disturbing for its meticulously staged sense of immediacy and its relentless tension and political urgency. France won the battle but lost the war, and the film remains totally relevant today.
Launching this June, the Why Matters series takes a closer look at cinematic greats: Jean Renior, Gillo Pontecorvo, Grigori Kozintsev and Tracey Moffatt.
Presented by film historian, distributor, exhibitor, documentary producer and director Andrew Pike, the four- part screening series will take audiences through a journey of classics from 1937-1993.
