Babor Casanova - Short Documentary by Karim Sayad, 35'

Adlan and Terrorist navigate Algiers desperately trying to make a few dinars any way they can. All week, they wait for the Mouloudia football games where they can forget the emptiness of their lives, sing their love for the team and dream about the boat that might take them far away from this unforgiving country. This non-fiction film impeccably plays with the limits of documentary filmmaking form. ‘Babor Casanova’ is the 2017 winner of the BBC Arabic ‘Liliane Landor Best in Journalism’ Award.
