Corum - Opéra Berlioz Dimanche 25 octobre 2009, 21 h 30




Mostaganem on the coast of Algeria, 200 kilometres from Algiers. Hassan, a people smuggler, forms a group of illegal immigrants for the crossing to Spain. Four of his friends and six ' harragas ' ('burners' of frontiers) from southern Algeria, who finance most of the crossing, participate in the adventure. It is a true commando operation, prepared in detail in complete secrecy by Hassan, Nasser and Rachid. But imponderables soon accumulate.

He made his first fiction feature, Omar Gatlato, in 1976.
