Achewiq - Le chant des femmes courage - Film - 16min - 2022

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 24


This summer, Kabylie, a region in Algeria, has burned. At the center of this tragedy, women are singing. Her song, Achewiq, sublimates the suffering. With simplicity, the daily life of the Sahel’s inhabitants is revealed. Through laughs and joy, they overcome all these sorrows. The earth’s ashes are becoming the new sprouts to bloom.
