    no presale

From the Arab-Muslim invasion and Turkish colonisation to the Algerian war, from the Mecca of the revolutionaries to the Black Decade, from yesterday to today, Algiers has struggled against every yoke imposed upon it. In a few key films, classic, mythical or hopeful, this is a story of resistance in Algiers.
