Daughter of Keltoum (2001)
A film by Mehdi Charef.
|A 19 year-old Swiss woman travels to her birthplace - an isolated, barren Berber settlement in the mountainous desert landscape of Algeria - to find her biological mother, who she has never met. The perilous journey immerses her in a world virtually untouched by contemporary society, one that still clings to tribal mores and strict religious codes of conduct.|
Editor's NoteThis intriguing film, written and directed by the impressive Mehdi Charef, follows Rallia (Cylia Malki), a 19-year-old Swiss woman who goes looking for her biological mother in a remote Berber region of Algeria.
