Mémoires d’immigrés (51min) Immigrant Memories

By Yamina Benguigui - French/Algerian - 1997 - 3 x 50min

Yamina Benguigui, a woman filmmaker of Algerian descent, described this documentary film project as ‘the narrative of my journey at the heart of the Maghrebi immigration in France. The history of fathers, mothers, children, the history of my father, of my mother. My history’. The tripartite documentary gives an account of the collective memory of the Maghrebi diaspora in France, juxtaposing the voices of Maghrebi immigrants with those of state officials who devised or implemented immigration and social policies. 

Awards: Won 7 d'Or Best Documentary (Meilleur documentaire)
