Algerian film director Lyes Salem received, Friday evening, the award of “Best Producer from the Arab World,” for his latest movie “El Wahrani,” at the 8th Abu Dhabi Film Festival (United Arab Emirates), reported the festival’s website.
Made in 2014, Lyes Salem’s second feature-length movie competed alongside 19 movies from Europe, Asia, Africa in the “Afaq Djadida” (New horizons) section, dedicated to “first or second movies of a film-maker.”
This 120-minute historic portrait relates the journey of two friends, Djaafar (Lyes Salem) and Hamid (Khaled Benaissa), comrades that find themselves at the end of the National Liberation War building, each in their own way, an independent Algeria.
Following a premiere in Algiers and a screening in Bejaia, the movie will be presented in Algerian theatres in November before being distributed in France.
