THE VILLAGE (El Qarya)

Directed by: Abdelmadjid KALLOU

Synopsis

The “Quarya” is a slum on the outskirts of the city Chalghoum laid, in the east of Algeria. In this open air yet enlosed space, where adults carry the burden of time which seems motionless, children, on the other hand, don’t see any desolation. Despite the garbage and the obvious misery, they keep on playing and looking at the world through their innocent eyes.
