My name is Andres Feijoo and I am a freshman at the University of Connecticut. I have to paper due next week on the "Battle of Algiers." I have a question about the role of journalism and media in the film, since the film takes the appearance of a newsreel of the events in Algeria that occurred in that time. I need information on this role because i cant find it anywhere. Hopefully you have seen the film, if not maybe you can refer me to someone else. Thanks.
