In Arabic with English subtitles The harsh realities of life in a society riven by conflict are at the heart of this powerful film that centres on Rachida, a school-teacher whose refusal to comply with a terrorist request to plant a bomb in her own school leads her to be badly wounded. She flees Algers for the mountains, but her hopes of resuming a normal life are dashed by the constant presence of fear and violence wherever she turns. Followed by a Q&A with the director.
