AFRICAN PREMIERE
Algeria, 1847: at the end of the epic resistance of Emir Abdelkader, the French colonial army turns its attention to Kabylia, whose people remain rebellious and unconquered. As the French prepare for the conquest of this strategic region, resistance is being organised with the contribution of fighters from nearby lands, including Sharif Boubeghla. It is in this world that Fadhma n’Soumer rises to prominence. Brought up in a family of scholars, Fadhma reveals an exceptional personality from a young age, defiantly rejecting 19th century patriarchal traditions for spiritual pursuits. In this stunning biopic, Hadjadj brings to life the extraordinary story of a mystic and resistance leader, called by the French the ‘Joan of Arc of Kabylia’.
