About the event

In conjunction with the Felfel Festival: A Celebration of North African Cultures in France
3 Literary Conversations in pairs with Kaoutar Harchi, Samira El Ayachi, Adila Bennedjaï-Zou…

They are novelists, authors-composers-performers, directors, and screenwriters. They are the heirs to a fragmented memory. In their biographical or autobiographical stories, they give voice to their parents, grandparents, and families, North Africans from Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and France. They enable invisible people or characters to be seen by the rest of the world, and recount little-known stories of immigration or anonymous destinies which have contributed to collective History. Their works have been praised by the public and media alike. For the Felfel Festival, they discuss in pairs, their stories and accounts, and the modalities of contemporary narration, while referring to each other’s bibliography, archives, discography, and even filmography to share excerpts with the public. Enjoy these literary, poetic, and personal talks, while sipping a lemonade, in the garden of the Fondation Cartier.
