THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS with producer/star Saadi Yacef in person

7:30 PM

Friday, October 7

Saadi Yacef, producer and star of Gillo Pontecorvo’s landmark The Battle of Algiers, will appear in person following tonight's 7:30 show. Yacef appears in the film as Djafar, one of the leaders of the insurrection — a role he played in life as a general in the National Liberation Front. Yacef wrote the original treatment for the film — adapted from his book Souvenirs de la bataille d’Alger — in jail after he was captured by the French. Q&A moderated by Fred Kaplan, the Pulitizer Prize-winning War Stories columnist for Slate. The Battle of Algiers will be shown in a new 4K restoration in honor of its 50th anniversary.
