Living in Paradise
Winner: Best First Film, Venice Film Festival

"Masterfully scripted and sensitively directed...an admirable feature debut."  Seattle International Film Festival.

Set in France in 1961-1962 during the Algerian War, Living In Paradise is a thought-provoking examination of the lives of North African immigrants trying to find a place in the social system of Western Europe.

The film focuses on Lakhdar, an immigrant construction worker living in the Nanterre shantytown. When he can no longer bear living without his wife and children whom he has left in southern Algeria, he brings them to live with him in France. Once there, Lakhdar's relationship with his wife deteriorates as she joins with other immigrants in a political movement to resist French oppression while he increasingly begins to identify with French attitudes and lifestyles.

Director: Bourlem Guerdjou, 1998, 105 minutes
