The French actress and director Lina Soualem will present her documentary film “Leur Algérie” in the halls of the French Institute in Morocco, on June 15 at the French Institute in Marrakech, and on June 16 at the French Institute in Casablanca.
“Leur Algérie” is screened on June 15 at the French Institute in Marrakech and on June 16 at the French Institute in Casablanca in the presence of French actress and director Lina Soualem.
The multi-award-winning documentary “Leur Algérie” evokes the career of the director’s grandparents. After 62 years of marriage, Aïcha and Mabrouk have decided to separate. Together they had come from Algeria to Auvergne, to Thiers, more than 60 years ago, and together they had gone through this chaotic life of immigrants. For Lina, their separation is an opportunity to question their long journey of exile and their silence. Overall, it’s a tender portrait of the family history of the director, and an absolute treat to watch!
