Now as an axe wielding maniac in a Santa suit, he sets out to punish all who are naughty this Christmas Eve!

The Battle of Algiers
This film is part of our original film series - REBELLION & REVOLUTION: Insurgent Cinema. A celebration of subversive cinema and guerilla-style filmmaking; and a study of insurrection in film.
THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS (1966) One of the most influential films about revolution in cinema history, vividly re-creating a key year in the Algerian struggle for independence from the occupying French in the 1950s. As violence escalates on both sides; children shoot soldiers at point-blank range, women plant bombs in cafes, and French soldiers resort to torture to break the will of the insurgents. Shot on the streets of Algiers in a documentary style, and featuring a phenomenal soundtrack by Ennio Morricone, the film is a powerful tour-de-force case study in modern guerilla warfare.
