this is my new short entirely shot in Algeria last 1st november. Normaly this day is the celebration of the beginning of the war of liberation in 1954 againt french colonial state, it's like the independance day in United states the fourth july.
This year coincide with a large movement for Civil rights. In Algeria they call it since february "The smile revolution" because it's a pacific revolution who won at this time the annulation of a prefabricated election in april and the actual fight is to establish a real democracy against a military state. Many activists or simple citizens are actually in jail but the population continues to manifest with a great dignity.
As you will see in this short, it was a "run and gun" shooting, i have often no time to check the sound so some shots present some distortion, i hope it's acceptable. This was shot with with a Panasonic GH5 in 4K hevc and 1080 p for slow motion shots.
Enjoy and share !
