UNTIL THE BIRDS RETURN

Karim Moussaoui's feature debut explores three diverse stories which plunge us into the human soul of contemporary Algerian society. Past and present collide in the lives of a newly wealthy property developer (Mohamed Djouhri), an ambitious neurologist (Hassan Kachach) impeded by wartime wrongdoings, and a young woman (Hania Amar, THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT) torn between the path of reason and sentiment. Moussaoui's evocative and tender portrait of his homeland weaves together these narrative strands to create a complex and nuanced representation of a country that has many more stories left to tell.
