Analysis and intepretation of the historical meaning of the movie “The Battle of Algiers” released in 1966


Modern Europe
View the feature film, “The Battle of Algiers.” Analyze the meaning of the film and the way the cinematography conveys meaning. Consult two film reviews or articles (in serious periodicals or journals, not what anyone happens to post on-line) to help you in your analysis.

“The Battle of Algiers” is widely available in libraries and from streaming services. If you cannot find it, you may select another film with an anti-colonial theme. But you must first check with me and provide me with some information about the substitute film.
