This dark narcotics thriller is set against the violent background of the amphetamine and cocaine trade. Based on a series of police-instigated killings that took place in New Orleans in 1980, THE ALGIERS MURDERS is a relentless narrative of power, manipulation, murder, corruption and degradation. In a world turned sour and sordid by tarnished ideals, one man is on a quest for redemption and justice. Fuelled by impressive performances, fluid writing and dynamic cinematography, THE ALGIERS MURDERS offers an alternative to the brash output of Hollywood action flicks.
With a strong local and international cast, this highly entertaining crime drama is set in a city of many nationalities and accents, driving home the point that it could be anywhere.
