Abstract Gillo Pontecorvo made The Battle of Algiers (1965), a documentary about Algeria on the brink of civil war. In Gillo Pontecorvo's Return to Algiers, the elderly Pontecorvo conducts interviews and comments on the changes to Algeria in a manner that provides an epilogue to his sporadic career.
