Directed by Yamina Bachir
Ibtissem Djouadi stars as Rachida, a young divorcee who teaches at a local
elementary school. When she makes the controversial decision not to wear a
veil over her face, Islamic terrorists kidnap her and try to force her to
plant a bomb in her school. When Rachida resists, her life is put in
immediate peril. Yamina Bachir-Chouikh's film is a powerful look at the
legacy of Algerian terrorism and its capacity to affect the lives of
everyday citizens. Arabic and French with English subtitles.
