More than a reportage, it is an essay. A first stone of a necessarily long and slow work, which will have to continue. A path nourished by my own questioning and the desire to discover, listen to and understand those of other "heirs", however different they may be. Here, no linear or descriptive narration, but six portraits around which gravitate a series of sequences that function as microcosms of ideas, questions and emotions that sometimes answer each other smoothly, sometimes clash. To make visible to the eye and the mind the chaos of deep emotions that Algeria arouses today, from France.
Here we speak of identity (s), transculturalism, migrations, exiles, belonging, racism, in a transversal way. It is from these visual encounters that possible dialogues are born, together, but also questions that would disturb us in the depths of ourselves, whatever our link or not with Algeria
The portraits of Norah, Mohamed, Samira, Marte-Hélène and Salvador, Momo, and Emilie are part of the final version of this project but many other people have contributed and inspired, through their time, their history, their ideas and conversations to the genesis of all the images of this project which explores without limit the idea of Algeria and its manifestations, collective or individual in French society.
