Algeria today. Past and present collide in the lives of a newly wealthy property developer, an ambitious neurologist impeded by wartime wrongdoings, and a young woman torn between the path of reason and sentiment. Three stories that plunge us into the human soul of a contemporary Arab society.
Born in 1976 in Jijel, Algeria, Karim Moussaoui became a film programmer in Algiers. For a number of years he worked as an assistant for directors such as Tariq Teguia and Nadir Moknache. In 2013 he made The days before. His debut feature film The nature of time (2017) has been selected to screen at the Cannes Film Festival. Until the birds return, was selected in the Un Certain Regard section at the 70th Cannes IFF.
