The Last Queen (Cert: TBC)

Directed by Adila Bendimerad and Damien Onouri  Starring Adila Bendimerad, Dali Benssalah, Mohamed Tahar Zaoui, Imen Nouel  Algeria, 1516. The pirate Aruj Barbarossa frees Algiers from the tyranny of the Spanish and seizes power over the kingdom. Rumour has it he murdered the King Salim Toumi, despite their alliance. Against all odds, one woman will stand up to him: Queen Zaphira. Between history and legend, this woman's journey tells of a struggle, of personal and political turmoil endured for the sake of Algiers. The first work co-directed by Algerian director-actress Adila Bendimerad and French-Algerian director Damien Ounouri, The Last Queen is “a pulsating portrait of a heroine from the past, boast[ing] sumptuous period costumes and sets, well-choreographed fight sequences and strong-willed female characters, all amidst a backdrop of flesh, blood and bones.” – CineEuropa  Part of SAFAR Film Festival and Liverpool Arab Arts Festival
