Drifa tells the story of her brother Sofiane, who left Algeria in 1992 and still lives in England. The film speaks about an unkown present and a repressed past, of absence, of an inner exile, and of those who stayed here and waited.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
