English

During the first euphoric years following the independence of Algeria, two close friends, Djaffar and Hamid, face a promising future. Over the decades, however, secrets and betrayal drive them apart. Six years after helming Masquerade, Lyès Salem presents a haunting political drama laced with the agony and angst of men and women who lived through the Algerian Revolution. Corruption in political life, falsification of historical facts and personal loss as well frustration brought about by arrogance and thirst for power are all dealt with remarkable lucidity and conviction. Above all, the movie enumerates through Djaffar’s life (an excellent performance by Salem) how tragic separations, breakdown of families, small sacrifices and strong selfish desires change the tone and tenor of a society.



Interspersed with the heartrending stories of revolutionaries and their unimaginable sacrifices, Salem’s latest film is also visually arresting with each frame magnificently composed.

The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Naoual Belakhdar (tbc) as well as a small reception in the cinema foyer.

In cooperation with Yedd e.V. and the Algerian Community of Berlin.
