Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche

Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche tells powerful stories of oppression, resistance, and rebellion. The Franco-Algerian filmmaker’s trans-national perspective enriches his cinema profoundly. A truly independent filmmaker, Ameur-Zaïmeche writes, directs, produces, and stars in all his films. This low-budget, guerrilla style of production allows him to depict realities often misrepresented or ignored in mainstream film. The result is a deceptively simple cinema that descends from the likes of Pier Paulo Passolini and Jean Renoir, equal parts poetic and political. This November & December, see a full retrospective of his extraordinary work at CinéSalon.

Films in French with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.
