Director: Chahine Fellahi
Experimental | 5 minutes
Combining archival footage collected from the Cinémathèque in Tangiers, Chahine Fellahi presents scenes of women walking in the countryside. As the women’s movements form and unform, the film evokes the nature of memory, remembering and forgetting. Chergui, meaning ‘the eastern wind’ in Arabic, carries these memories away.
This film was screened at the Arab Film Festival, San Francisco (2019).
Sharjah Art Foundation and Habibi Collective present five short films by MENA female directors that explore how filmmaking has enabled women to explore their own subjectivity and sense of becoming.
