Battle of Algiers
The Algerian Revolution – from both sides

“A surprisingly unbiased account” of the Algerian revolution, in all its “violence, complexity and fervour” told from both sides in a film of “vivid intensity”.

In 2003, the New York Times reported that the Pentagon screened this film for officers and civilian experts who were discussing the challenges faced by the US military forces in Iraq. The flier inviting guests to the screening read:
“How to win a battle against terrorism and lose the war of ideas”.

Doors open at 7:40. Film starts 8pm.

This film is being shown on a not-for-profit basis for educational purposes. However, you may decide to take the opportunity to donate to help keep Hydra afloat, so that we can keep providing you with radical reads and a friendly space.
