About Papicha (2019)

Nedjma (Lyna Khoudri, starring in Wes Anderson’s upcoming The French Dispatch), an 18 year-old student in 1990s Algeria, is passionate about fashion design and refuses to let the tragic events of the Algerian Civil War keep her from experiencing a normal life and going out at night with her friend, Wassila. As the social climate becomes more conservative, she rejects the new bans set by the radicals and decides to fight for her freedom and independence by putting on a fashion show. This film was Algeria’s official submission for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2020 Academy Awards. In French and Arabic with English subtitles.
