Montreal, White City (Canada, 2016. 87 min.) Director: Bachir Bensaddek! Cast: Karina Aktouf, Rabah Aït Ouyahia.

Join us for the closing night of April in Paris, complete with a wine and cheese reception at 7 pm and the Connecticut Premiere of the first film by Bachir Bensaddek! Kahina (Karina Aktouf), is a former Algerian pop star who abandoned the country during the Algerian Civil War and emigrated to Canada to live in peace and privacy. One Christmas Eve, however, she gets into a taxi driven by Amokrane (Rabah Aït Ouyahia), a more recent Algerian immigrant who recognizes her. Together, they drive the streets of the new country, exploring their double cultural identity and nostalgia for home.
