At our Last Film Club we studied “Concerning Violence” to explain the role of armed struggle in national liberation struggles.
This Session we will show The Battle of Algiers, one of the greatest films of all time that humanizes both the revolutionaries and the occupiers in a way that makes anti-colonialism clearly the only choice for the oppressed.
Please check in by 5:45, announcements 6:00 to 6:10, commentary by Eric Mann 6:10 to 6:30, film from 6:30 to 8:30 (it is a 2 hour film) and discussion and conversation from 8:30 to 9 and for those who like to hang out, until 9:30 for the hard core.
