How far does one need to go, in order to get to the place where he came from?
My project was inspired by the daily life of the French people between the years 1830-1962 in Algeria. Algeria was conquered by France and was considered to be a French territory, for all intents and purposes nevertheless, the French that arrived to Algeria kept the family values, the language and French culture.
The great distance between European-France and African-Algeria allowed the development of something new that was created from the clash, between East and West.
This development is reflected in the work of Albert Camus, whom influenced a lot in this work. The Colonial culture which I refer to is the French culture which is my father’s family heritage, Algerian-born French, while I am referring also to my own culture, sensitive Israeli culture.
