by Mohamed Rachid BENHADJ

Algeria, 1991. In the city streets, Muslim fundamentalist fever is growing. Fella, a 40- year-old Algerian woman, is about to go out to be interviewed for a television programme. But doubt, fear and pain make her hesitate.
Is this the right time to speak. out as a woman, to recall the past, to immerse oneself in her childhood of war-time Algeria and tell the dreams, the utopia and the reality of post-Independence Algeria ? Is this the right time to speak out, set free the memory that has been smothered by decades of silence and cry out her fear in front of the rise of Muslim fundamentalism? Fella turns her thoughts into an indictment of fundamentalism.
