Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Rachida (Amazon.com Exclusive)

The first-full length feature film by Yaminda Bachir-Choikh evokes memories of the worst atrocities of the terror in Algeria.

The forces of violence and ignorance erode but don't conquer decency and enlightenment in Rachida, the story of a vivacious young schoolteacher who refuses to buckle under intimidation, despite her anguish at living under the constant threat of terror in unexpected places. The film also highlights the corruption of an education system that has become the breeding ground of a culture of hatred.

"An urgent attack on wanton Islamic terrorism in Algeria."
-Boston Phoenix

"A spare and moving tale." -Village Voice

Rachida is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Arabic with English subtitles.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
