Narimane Mari, Le fort des fous, 2017, digital video, ​installation view, Ballhaus, Kassel, documenta 14, photo: Fred Dott

Departing from material records of the early colonial “scientific expeditions” and “taming campaigns” led by the French colonizers in North Africa, the story follows a community of young nomads and wanderers as they form an imagined utopian society. Reenactments, improvisations, and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island, and the Prosfygika community in Athens inform this work as instances of alternative temporality and autonomous space.

Narimane Mare, Le fort des fous, 2017, Algeria/Greece/France, 140 min.
In Arabic, French, Greek, and English with English and German subtitles
