THEIR ALGERIA

2020 - documentary - DZ/CH/QA - 82 min

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.

“Lina Soualem makes a successful directorial debut with an intimate, sensitive and poignant documentary about her grandparents and the identity of Algerians who immigrated to France after the war.” – CINE EUROPA
