    • Synopsis
    • Dorothée-Myriam departs for Algeria, visits her father’s village, spends time in the military archives in France, and meets former French soldiers, to make speak the silences of the history of forced resettlement of Algerian civilians during the war of independence (1954-1962) - a story, a history, that neither her father nor her high school textbooks alluded to. "El-Rihla" is the story of a geographical, historical and oneiric journey into a 50 year old episode of a war that overwhelmed her with traumatic feelings that she had not expected to confront.
