Cinema Spoutnik in Geneva will show Loubia Hamra (Bloody Beans) on Wednesday October 22 at 8:30pm, in the presence of the filmmaker Narimane Mari and of the original soundtrack musician Cosmic Neman, from band Zombie Zombie, present for a DJ set after the screening.
The director’s first feature film, which won several awards in 2013 and which was presented at Visions du Réel as part of the Doc Alliance Selection 2014, is a formidable example of how younger generations can appropriate a history that obviously goes over their heads. Transparently illustrating colonisation and the Algerian War of Independence, as well as the ensuing complex and painful relationships, Loubia Hamra is above all a film imbued with grace and the joy of children at play.
