1 h 38 min
Friday 15th of September at 21.00
Screening age limit: 18
Language: Arabic, French
Content warnings: violence
An aspiring ballet dancer is forced to change the course of her life when she’s attacked on her way home one night in Houria, a drama bursting with female energy and power (…) In some ways it feels like part two of director Mounia Meddour’s notable Papicha, which won a French César for best first feature and was selected as Algeria’s 2020 Oscar submission.
Text: Deborah Young, The Film Verdict
