Karim Sayad’s “My English Cousin” wraps up 17th Film Festival of Bejaia


BEJAIA (Algeria) – Filmmaker Karim Sayad’s latest film “My English Cousin” produced in 2018 has been screened at the end of the 17th Film Festival of Bejaia.

The film is an intimate portrait of his cousin, established in Grimsby, Britain since 2001, clandestinely first (06 years) and then regularly and who at 40 years vow to return to the country, to mount a deal and find a shoe to his feet with a fellow countryman. This is the perfect archetype of the emigrant, who “flees” his country to improve his lot.

This closing evening was preceded in the afternoon, by the presentation of a Danish film, screened as part of these RCB and in partnership with the days of the European film. This is Simon Lereng Wilmont’s film, “The distant barking of dogs”, which evokes the Russo-Ukrainian conflict and highlights a war portrait of Oleg, a 10-year-old Ukrainian child caught in the torment of war. T

The film was screened in the presence of the ambassadors of Ukraine, Maxime Sobh and the European Union in Algeria, John O ‘Rourke.
