Invitation to Biyouna

Singer, dancer and actress Biyouna divides her time between the theater and the cinema, Algeria and France, putting her rebellious and warm personality in roles for filmmakers as diverse as Nadir Moknèche (Délice Paloma), Radu Mihaileanu (The Source) and Rayhana (I Still Hide to Smoke). An encounter sure to be full of humor and amiability.

Mrs. Aldjéria (Biyouna) dreams of buying the baths of Caracalla to turn them into a luxury hotel... The portrait of an Algeria in full transformation, carried by one of its icons.

In a small village, Leila (Leïla Bekhti) convinces women (including Biyouna) to go on a ‘love strike’ so that men bring water from the spring to the village... A tribute to the emancipation of women and the Arab Spring revolts.
