Au Loin is an essay film highlighting the memories of the
Algerian war through the prism of two men, to whom the events have
been part of their lives.
Marcel is a French carpenter who was enlisted by the army to secure a part of the territory when he was 19. The unnamed, is an Uber driver working in London whose family was murdered by the French during the war.
The film attempts to tackle the question of nations memory and trauma by letting speeches and remembrance work with each other. Either by entering ones home or through an assemblage of forgotten images, it attempts to raise the question of the behind, the ripple effect of connecting the unbearable past with a questionable present.
