Let Them Come

Maintenant Ils Peuvent Venir

SALEM BRAHIMI
France, Algeria, 2015
95 minutes, Color
Official website

In Person: Director Salem Brahimi

Up to 200,000 Algerians are thought to have perished in clashes between the government and Islamist rebels during the 1990s, a period referred to as the dark decade. Director Salem Brahimi's gripping drama traces the increasingly difficult lives of a secular young couple—civil servant Noureddine (Amazigh Kateb) and proud feminist Yasmina (Rachida Brakni)—as sectarian strife breaks them apart before bringing them back together under dangerous circumstances. Spanning a decade, Brahimi's suspenseful and potent narrative provides profound insight into the day-to-day lives of citizens caught up in a hell not of their making and of which they want no part.—Palm Springs International Film Festival

In French and Arabic with English subtitles
