About this Episode
A rebellion film if there ever was one, Italian director Gillo Pontecorvo's magnum opus dramatizes the fight against French Colonialism in 1950s Algeria.
A quintessential example of Italian neorealism, the documentary-style of the filming, the film stock itself, and the use of non-professional actors give this film a gritty, real-life feel.
It has been an inspiration to terrorist organizations and governments alike, and is an important and thought-provoking part of cinema history.
