Le Fort des fous - Narimane Mari

France, Qatar, Greece, Germany, Algeria, Switzerland, 2017, 140 min
  • Production: Centrale Electrique, Xenia Film

Departing from material records of the early colonial scientific expeditions and taming campaigns led by the French colonizers in North Africa, the story follows a community of young nomads and wanderers as they form an imagined utopian society in response to imperialist rule.
Reenactments, improvisations, and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island, and the Prosfygika community in Athens inform this work as instances of alternative temporality and autonomous space that reflects on the displacement and re-appropriation of the telling of history and re-activates memories as resistance strategies.
