Tar Angel
Der Engel aus Teer
Directed by: 

The father of an Algerian immigrant family is about to receive Canadian citizenship when his son disappears. With his son’s Canadian girlfriend, the father sets out to find him, and begins to understand his socio-political protest as well as to see the limits of his own culture. A both touching and explosively political film.
