  • Mkawda

    Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2022

    Using the metaphor of a doctor listening to an ailing patient’s beating heart, visual artist Souad Douibi takes us through the streets of Algiers for a “check-up” on its inhabitants. A totally immersive sound experience, ‘Mkawda’ captures the zeitgeist of a city in pain. One that is sick of corruption, forced migration and economic mismanagement. But the hope of the people is evident in their words and proof that maybe time can heal all wounds.
