Released just four years after Algeria had secured its independence from France, this technical and dramatic masterclass has lost none of its power to shock and provoke.
Despite winning the Golden Lion at Venice and being nominated for three Academy Awards, The Battle of Algiers was banned in France for five years. It's this contentiousness on which its reputation still rests.

“Assia Djebar always listens as much as she watches and records, from the special, not to say privileged perspective of a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary woman. Her vision is therefore unique.”David Wills University at Albany-SUNY

“When she films La Nouba, Djebar views her appropriation of the camera as a challenge to colonial and patriarchal domination, an important political and symbolic event in the liberation and empowerment of Algerian women.”Mimi Mortimer University of Colorado, Boulder

Festival Panafricain d’Alger
  • William Klein, France, West Germany, Algeria 1969 ⁄ Nina Simone, Archie Shepp, Miriam Makeba ⁄ color ⁄ 110' ⁄ ST-OND: FR



Algeria was in the late 60s the rallying point for all the world’s revolutionaries. At that time, several 'colonies' were still fighting for their independence, and the South African apartheid regime continued to dominate the region. In 1969, Algiers organised what was to become the most notable cultural event in Africa, the first Pan-African Cultural Festival. Each African country is represented by one cultural group, and they sing and dance in their amazingly varied forms throughout the streets. This is another time, a time where the streets still belong to the people. Through the film we sense the intense feeling of communion as we watch artists, poets, musicians, writers, revolutionary freedom fighters talking, meeting and jamming together. The mood is infused with a militant spirit. You feel the pride of being an African.
