Join the Dead Beat Film Society as we talk the people's liberation, imperialism, terrorists vs. freedom fighters, some history of the French occupation of Algeria, how they achieved a documentary feel, the ethics of torture (spoiler alert: it's bad), the lack of a central focus or character, sympathy towards both sides, violent vs. nonviolent protest, the role of women in the revolution, the power of Ennio Morricone's soundtrack, the city as a character, the incredible impact the film had on revolutions around the world, and why we didn't see the same kind of overtly violent revolution in 1960's America with an in depth The Battle Of Algiers film analysis!
