Hassla/La clôture / The Fence
Amongst Friend And Neighbours

The intolerable difficulty of living in Algeria today. The powerlessness of not having any alternatives to the infinite waiting that affects a multitude of young people of about thirty, who see neither present nor future, neither work nor the possibility of a peaceful sentimental life in Algeria. They live in the popular neighbourhoods of Algiers, like Bab El Oued, and give vent to all their anger and despair in front of the videocamera. The city is rainy and dark. A car journey leads nowhere at all. They all stay there. Without a visa it is impossible to go anywhere.
BIOGRAPHY
Studied Philosophy and Visual Arts in Paris, returning to Algeria to film his shorts: Kech mouvement (What's Up?, 1993), Le chien (The Dog, 1995), Ferrailles d'attente (Iron Frameworks, 1998) and Hassla/La clôture (The Fence, 2002). He is currently working on his first fictional feature film with the backing of Rotterdam Festival's Hubert Bals Fund.
