"I always liked smugglers because they are playing with borders. But, I soon realized that the one who was sitting in this dark room in the middle of the night after a long day of work, couldn’t do anything with the moods that he inspires me. Me, his uncle, a “migrated” came to film this land that he and his mount detest above all." This film depicts the aspirations and anxieties of a young Algerian smuggler transporting fuel by mule , from his village to the Moroccan border. Through his portrait, emerges the filmmaker’s ambiguous relation with this piece of territory.


Mohamed Ouzine

Mohamed Ouzine came to cinema by way of photography. His first films were centred around 'sociological' themes: everyday life in a prison and the relationships between three women prisoners and their children in One hour only, 2001, co-directed with Vianney Lambert. He went on to film a community of evangelist Romas who set off on the roads of France in search of God, and caravan sites, in Caravane (2003). He then got caught up in the question of his own origins, which became the subject of a scenario for a narrative film called Tarik's War - which won a development grant at Cinemed in 2010, before making Samir in the Dust.
