Normal! (2011) DVD9
After the riots in December and the first peaceful marches, and while the Arab Spring begins in Tunisia and Egypt, in Algeria Fouzi wants to get this actors together to show them the unfinished edit of a film that he'd shot two years earlier about the disillusion of local young people trying to express their artistic ideas.
He's looking for another point of view and above all for an ending and is counting on the actors' reactions to invent a new resolution to his story in a country that is suddenly caught in the upheaval of a wave of protest.
During the screening, a debate begins. What place does creation hold in the Algeria of today? How does one create without being confronted by censorship? How can one resists? By making films or by marching toward a new revolution?
Two tales interweave: fiction and reality? Debates and wandering?
A new vision of Algerian youth today caught up in questioning the meaning of politics and art.
