“Hirafi”, (Artisan) report on art trades premiered in Algiers


ALGIERS- “Hirafi”, a report on traditional art trades, which are still practiced today, has been premiered, Thursday night, at the Algerian cinematheque.

Directed and self-financed by Wahid Tachouche, “Hirafi”, (Artisan), is a 15-minute report presented in the form of a documentary in seven sequences in a row, accessible on a dedicated website.

Hirafi is a realistic documentary entirely devoted to the trades of yesteryear which, despite the lack of tools and the threat of technological developments, continue to resist time.

Filmed at work, cabinetmaker, carpenter, chocolatier, bookbinder, ironworker and ceramist confide in front of the camera in a setting “without script” which allowed the public to soak up the “professional” atmosphere in these old decrepit workshops.

The documentary Hirafi will be broadcasted on the eponymous website and also visible on facebook via the page “Makook” dedicated to the artistic creation and passionate crafts.
