Ask Your Shadow



Eight years after leaving Algeria, his native country, for France, Lamine Ammar-Khodja decided to end his exile on January 6 2011, the date on which popular riots started in Algiers.
Organised in chronological form, the film is related in the first person and in the same way as the famous Book A Return Home by Aimé Césaire to whom the filmmaker pays tribute, he retraces the difficulty of finding his place again. The progression is not only a private affair, but also the opportunity to look again at Algeria’s recent history, at a time when the country could have passed a new turning point.
