May 2019: Two Brazilian women travelled to Algiers during the demonstrations of Hirak, a popular movement for democracy. In the middle of the crowd, they met a young girl. The sea that separates them is the same one that can join them together.

MUBI's take

Shot on mobile phones due to censorship fears, this immersive, vibrant short depicts Algerian demonstrations in defense of democracy. Taking it to the streets with a local protester, Brazilian directors Bruna Carvalho Almeida and Brunna Laboissière reflect on their country’s politics and future.
