ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Battle of Algiers. Thought provoking and chilling, The Battle of Algiers documents the bloody revolution of Algeria against its French rulers in 1960. Examining both sides of the struggle, shootings, terrorist plots and riots ravage the city of Algiers and culminate in the final battle which wins them their independence. Morals are questioned when resistance fighters use torture and French leaders bomb innocent citizens. Using documentary filming techniques and refusing to romanticize any of the protagonists, war is examined through a dramatic but unbiased lens of the brutal horrors necessary to achieve liberty.
