The Window (Le Hublot), UK PREMIERE
Dir. Anis Djaad
Algeria. 2012. 20min. Colour. Arabic with English subtitles.
Two unemployed and disaffected youths only have the view of the sea to expand their otherwise bleak horizon. The construction of a new building threatens to obstruct their vista to life.
Anis Djaad is a former journalist and a writer born in Algiers in 1974. The Window is his first short. A deceptively tranquil film that sheds light on circumstances that cast a blight on the hopes of young men, The Window is executed with remarkable poise and sensitivity.
