Femme courage, 2003.

Narrates the struggle of Louisa Ighilahriz, a prominent figure in Algerian independence. Her life is saved by an anonymous person, whom she seeks to find him during a period of 43 years to express her gratitude. Back in Algeria she tells her story; Docteur Richaud had saved her life and she wanted to thank him in person. And in retelling her story, and that of the Algerian resistance movement, it becomes increasingly clear that a great deal has yet to be resolved. The film is in Arabic, produced by
Marianne Khoury.
