Sponsor of the the Institut français’ 2020 Fabrique Cinéma programme, Rachid Bouchareb gave a masterclass at the end of May to the 17 film makers and producers from southern and emerging countries who are taking part in this 2020 edition.

It was an opportunity for the director and scriptwriter to explain his career and approach, going back over five of his films that take us from Algeria to Senegal, via the American continent, England and Turkey, and on the themes, central to his work, of immigration (Little Senegal) and racism – “a scourge to be constantly fought around the world” (Indigènes).

Rachid Bouchareb also details his attachment to the process of creating film, from the research – “the part I prefer” – to collaboration with the actors, and recalls the importance of the producers who have placed their trust in him as well as his place within 3B. 

Finally, he tells us that he has enriched himself with the stories offered by the young film makers taking part in the Fabrique Cinéma programme. This “new blood” renews it. Remembering his beginnings, the best years when “we see dreams in a big way”, he confides that he would have “liked to be one of the participants”.

Find the complete masterclass on Saturday, June 10 June, from 10 am to 11:30 am on the Institut français Facebook page.
