Le fort des fous

Regisserad av Narimane Mari
Frankrike, Qatar, 2017


In three acts, we see re-enactments, improvisations and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island and Athens. A poetic voyage moving between past, present, and imagination, putting colonialism and the grave consequences of a collective hubris in focus.

Le fort des fous Regisserad av Narimane Mari
Narimane Mari’s follow-up to her superb Bloody Beans satirizes the rigidity of Algeria’s colonial past while offering a model for a future free of its ghosts . . . As beautiful as these images are, the crowds call to mind the migrant crisis in other parts of that country and Europe, a situation that is as entrenched and seemingly hopeless as colonial rule was.

The central part was easily the most absorbing, though regardless of personal preference it’s hard to imagine a viewer who could value all three drastically different sections equally. Perhaps this confrontation of categories of taste is the point—and Mari is a strong enough filmmaker to convincingly employ and dispense with different styles at will—though a shapeshifter like By the Time It Gets Dark, included in the previous year’s Wavelengths, goes deeper in exploring the anxiety of approach.
