A woman hides a bomb in a public place.

"The Battle of Algiers" depicts the struggle to create an independent Algerian state, from the beginnings of rebellion in 1954 to the country's eventual liberation in 1962. This docudrama combines some actual newsreel footage with staged sequences featuring amateur and professional actors playing characters based on real people. It emphasizes the organization of guerrilla forces and the methods used by the French government to stifle resistance.
