Viva Algeria

A film by Nadir Moknèche

Algiers, the winter of 2003. Three women, a mother, her daughter and a prostitute have been living in a hotel in the centre of town since the start of the violence.
Goucem, the daughter, has made an emancipated life for herself, working for a photographer, taking a generous, married lover and spending steamy weekends in nightclubs.
Fifi, her faithful friend, prostitutes herself, under the thumb of a powerful and "kind" protector.
Papicha, the mother, eats pizzas in front of the TV, torn between fear and the nostalgia of her former fame as a cabaret dancer.
And even if death is constantly and insidiously at their doorstep, they resolutely refuse to give up the fight!

With Lubna Azabal, Biyouna, Nadia Kaci, Jalil Naciri, Waguih Takla, Lounès Tazairt
