The Presents of the Past | The Archeology of the Self

À Mansourah, tu nous as séparés

by Dorothée-Myriam Kellou, 2019 (in Algeria)

France | 67min | French subtitles

À Mansourah, tu nous as séparés documents, through memories, the little-known story of forced migrations that took place during the Algerian war. An important historical document revealing through a personal journalistic investigation the fallibility of collective memory, this feature film evolves to the rhythm of the memories of its main protagonist, Malek, the filmmaker’s father.

FIFEQ’s review

« An important encounter between long-censored memories and the filmic development of a personal, familial, and cultural identity. »
