    SOUTH TERMINAL

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche France, 2019

    The latest film by Algerian-French auteur Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche is an engrossing drama tinged with a thriller’s suspense. Echoing Casablanca’s hero fighting to keep wartime neutrality and Transit’s clever use of an unnamed locale, Ameur-Zaïmeche vividly tells a timeless story of paramount urgency.

    WESH WESH, QU'EST-CE QUI SE PASSE?

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche France, 2001

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche’s first film draws from his own experiences growing up in Paris’ banlieue, recording in a raw, naturalistic style the everyday struggles of its people. A difficult return exposes France’s problems of social integration, and acts as an authentic, sensitive call for reflection.

    STORY OF JUDAS

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche France, 2015

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche plays one of the world’s great outsiders—Jesus’ disciple Judas—in this Algeria-set revision of the famous Biblical tale. Shining a more compassionate light on Judas than others before him, the film rethinks the last days of Jesus from the perspective of his closest follower.

    DERNIER MAQUIS

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche France, 2008

    The third feature by auteur Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche is this subtly observed take on the French-Algerian immigrant experience. Integrating thorny themes such as religious belief and workers’ rights into the very core of the story, Dernier Maquis is a warmly crafted Ken Loach-style drama.

    SMUGGLERS' SONGS

    Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche France, 2011

    The first non-contemporary drama from Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche finds revolutionary fervor in the air following the death of a Robin Hood-like outlaw. Playfully inventive in its digitally-captured recreation of the past, Smugglers’ Songs features a barnstorming turn from fellow director, Jacques Nolot.
