Assia Djebar, from writing to filming
In 1978 Assia Djebar was already a well established Francophone Algerian woman writer. It was during that year that her first film La nouba des femmes du mont Chenoua was shown in Algerian cinemas. This first attempt was followed by a second film La Zerda ou les chants de I’oubli. These concurrent creative processes show how, for Djebar, writing and filming are two closely linked activities.
