Merzak Allouache

After the riots of December and the first peaceful marches, while “the Arab Sprinb” begins in Tunisia and Egypt, Fouzi wants his actors together to show them the incomplete editing of the film he made, two years ago, on the disillusionment of a youth seeking to express his artistic ideas. He seeks an alternative view, and especially an ending. He relies on the reactions of his actors to invent a new conclusion to his story, in a country suddenly lifted by a wave of protests. During the film, the debate settles in : what is the place of creation in Algeria today? How to create without confronting censorship? How to resist? By making films or walking towards a new revolution? Two stories intertwine, fiction and reality? Discussions and wanderings? A new vision of today’s Algerian youth, in the middle of a new political and artistic questioning.
