Algeria, 120 mins
Arabic/French with English subtitles
Nedjma, a young investigative journalist for an Algerian daily, is spurred to action by the ongoing instrumentalisation of the concept of paradise in extremist propaganda and calls to djihad by Middle Eastern Salafist preachers ever-present on the Internet. She decides to investigate the place of paradise in the Muslim imagination. Assisted by Mustapha, her colleague, she criss-crosses Algeria in search of a panoply of opinions, young and old, male and female, intellectual and street-smart.
