The Yellow House
Directed by:
A positive vision of how images can facilitate the healing process. La maison jaune/The Yellow House portrays the triumph of hope over adversity.
In the midst of mourning for a son killed while away, a Berber family in Algeria finds strength, renewal, love and support from both within the family and the wider community. Amor Hakkar’s film is poetically crafted using sensitivity, subtlety and humour.
