TEHRAN -- The Iran National Library and Archives (INLA) will be hosting the Algerian Cultural Festival opening on December 13.

The festival will hold Algerian film screening sessions in addition to a number of concerts, Persian media reported on Wednesday.

Gillo Pontecorvo’s 1966 black-and-white film “The Battle of Algiers”, which recreates France’s suppression of the 1950s Algerian uprising, will go on screen during the five-day event.

Also included are the films “L’Algérie Vue Du Ciel” (On the Sky of Algeria) by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and “Le Puits” (The Well) by Algerian filmmaker Lotfi Bouchouchi.

Musician Nouri Koufi is also among several musicians who have been invited to give performances during the festival.

Tehran’s Milad Tower hosted the Algerian cultural festival late October last year, in which the thriving tourism industry of Algeria, beautiful handicrafts, traditional costumes and traditional cuisine were introduced.
