- "Restored in 4K by Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata, in collaboration with Casbah Films"  
- The 4K restoration of The Battle of Algiers was made from the original camera and sound negatives. The overlays of both the original Italian and Franco-Arabic versions have been digitally reconstructed using a period dupe negative and recombined on a period dupe positive background. A 1966 print, made available by the director's family, was used as reference for reconstruction and grading. During the color correction, supervised by Marco Pontecorvo, the best efforts were made to replicate the grainy and contrasted look originally conceived by director Gillo Pontecorvo."
