Chergui (2019)
Director: Chahine Fellahi
Experimental | 5 minutes
No dialogue

Combining archival footage collected from the Cinémathèque in Tangiers, Chahine Fellahi presents scenes of women walking in the countryside. As the women’s movements form and unform, the film evokes the nature of memory, remembering and forgetting. Chergui, meaning ‘the eastern wind’ in Arabic, carries these memories away.

This film was screened at the Arab Film Festival, San Francisco (2019).
