All African People's Revolutionary Party - Portland, Oregon says
The Battle of Algiers is a classic film chronicling Algerian resistance to French colonialism and imperialism on the African continent during the late 1950s and early 1960s. The film explores the brutality and barbarism of French efforts to combat indigenous resistance while highlighting the indomitable revolutionary spirit of the Algerian people.

The Battle of Algiers unapologetic focus on anti-imperialist resistance in the Algerian Revolution was met with great controversy upon it’s release in 1966: “Screenings for The Battle of Algiers were often perceived as fostering domestic insurrection and providing tactical instructions for revolutionaries. The film was initially banned in France, while in the United States the Algerian rebellion was equated with the African liberation struggle and the actions of the Black Panther Party.” (read more: https://www.historians.org/publications-and-directories/perspectives-on-history/october-2010/terrorism-on-screen-lessons-from-the-battle-of-algiers)
