We’re offering a sliding scale for our Unorthodocs screenings in an effort to keep our programming accessible to all people, especially in a moment of extreme financial uncertainty. Please consider your needs and abilities—as well as those of others—when choosing how much to pay for this screening. We are very grateful for the generous support of patrons with the means to chip in a bit more in these precarious times.
Experience a day in the life of Nardjes, a young Algerian woman, as she takes part in the protests that sweep over Algeria when the country’s president announces his unconstitutional candidacy for a fifth term.
Shot on March 8, 2019—International Women’s Day—the documentary follows Nardjes from her job to the streets and then a dance party to release the tension from the protest. Aïnouz and his team thrillingly capture the joys, anxieties, and sense of commitment that emerge from purposeful protest, demonstration, and revolution. Despite being shot on a cell phone, the film emerges as full-bodied experience. Aïnouz visited the Wexner Center in 2015 for a retrospective of his films. (80 mins., digital video)
This presentation also includes a conversation between Karim Aïnouz and filmmaker Kirsten Johnson (Cameraperson and Dick Johnson Is Dead).
