Leur Algérie

FRA/ALG | 2020 | 70 mins | dir. Lina Soualem | In French and Arabic with EN subs | Cert tbc

After 62 years of living together, Lina’s grandparents, Aïcha and Mabrouk, have decided to separate. Together, they came from Algeria to Thiers, a small medieval town in the middle of France, over 60 years ago. Side by side, they have experienced this chaotic immigrant life. For Lina, their separation is an opportunity to question their long journey of exile and their silence.
