About This Project

Directed by Amine Hattou

I wrote, produced and sung on a track for this documentary. The lyrics were inspired by one of the protagonists who stated that his love feels far and near at the same time.

From the Kaske Film website: “In Algeria in the mid-1980s, during a period of intense political and social unrest, the Bollywood film ‘Janitou’ became an unexpected overnight sensation throughout the country. This documentary is a journey to unravel the emotional identity of Algerian men, intimate connection between two distinct cultures, a truthful tribute to cinema, and an Algerian Filmmaker’s personal quest to discover what is love in past and contemporary Algeria.”
