  • Ceasefire

    2003. Algeria/France. Directed by Ahmed Zi. When airplanes drop leaflets announcing a ceasefire ending the civil war, a young Algerian shepherd, too poor to afford schooling, becomes stubbornly determined to decipher the text In Arabic; English subtitles. 15 min.

  • Sons of the Wind

    1981. Algeria. Directed by Brahim Tsak. Four almost wordless segments, poetic yet unsentimental, focus on people living in the countryside on the edge of society. Children playing, sudden bursts of wildness, grown-up faces lit by warming fires in winter—landscapes and the people they shape and (barely) sustain. 71 min.
