Paris La Blanche


A 70-year old Algerian woman crosses the Mediterranean for the first time in search of her migrant husband, who had traveled to France 40 years prior to find work that would support his growing family. After many months of receiving money but no news, Rekia has decided it’s time to bring Nour back to his homeland. Director Lidia Terki uses a script and images that evoke classic poetic realism, eschewing a traditional narrative for a sensual, cinematic depiction of the emotional experience of immigrant life.
