The test Garden
A film shooting hard to carry out, with actors misled by a director, mean in revealing information about the film making conditions for his film proposal.
Shot in the beautiful botanical gardens of Algiers, Le jardin d’essai, displays a fiction-like energy to question the status of creation in today’s Algeria and echo a sad truth, the impossible implication of citizens in projects that often fail to follow through. Impossible ? Not so impossible as the narrator of this story tells us: « See, neither hunger or thirst could make us give up ».
