Tahar Hannache is the first Algerian filmmaker. He directed ‘Aux Portes du Sahara’ in 1938. The anti-colonial film disappeared during World War II but was recently found at the Cinémathèque of Penthaz, Switzerland. Hannache’s daughter, Tourya, and Zineb Sedira will go on a journey of discovery to watch the film. Zineb will subsequently direct an art-biopic about the forgotten filmmaker.
