Shot on the streets of Algiers in documentary style, Pontecorvo’s film re-creates a key year in the Algerian independence struggle.

Banned in France for many years, and censored both in Britain and the US, it was celebrated by left-wing movements worldwide throughout the 1960s and is astonishingly relevant today.
