The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad is screening a French film, Viva Algeria (Viva Laldjérie), on 8 December at the Sri Sarathi studios Preview Theatre, Ameerpet.

Directed by Nadir Moknéche, the film runs for 113 minutes. It has Lubna Azabal, Biyouna, Nadia Kaci and Lounès Tazairt playing the central characters in it. The movie won the best film award, and its lead actress Nadia Kaci won the best actress award, at the 21st Alexandra International Film Festival.

The film revolves around 3 women - a mother, her daughter and her friend - living in a hotel in present-day Algeria that is a heady mixture of modern society and Islamic fundamentalism. The mother, Papicha, is a flamboyant and headtsrong woman, who, in her younger days earned a living as a cabaret dancer at the Copacabana night-club. Goucem, her 20-something daughter, leads an independent life working for a photographer and romancing a married doctor. Fifi, her brazen prostitute friend who lives next door, is under the thumb of a powerful and 'kind' protector.

Hell breaks lose when Papicha receives word that a celebrated nightclub, where she once performed, is being turned into a mosque. Upset and indignant that the city she knew so well is changing at an alarming rate, she sets out to find a new venue that will let her dance to her heart's content. In the rest of the story, difficult personal situations and the growing influence of Islam lead to dramatic consequences.

Entry is free for members of the Hyderabad Film Club. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy, at 2373-0841 for further details.
