A Short film by Neïl Beloufa

Produced by Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains

Production year : 2010


    A cardboard decoration and photos reconstitutes a luxurious villa of Californian type in Algeria. The inhabitants, neighbors and the other protagonists come there to explain why and how this one would have been occupied by terrorists to hide, while, paradoxically, it is completely glazed. They would have even maintained it to leave no track of their passage. This improbable and insolvent anecdote leads the characters to invent the images of a period mediatized without clichés nor stories by missing the main object
